Random Poem ( String of Tanka )

That comes from low self esteem
Breeds hate that gives rise
To vileness and callousness
A trait to be avoided
Your words are mirrors
Reflecting your inner thoughts
Character is built
Snake is known for its venom
A rose for its loveliness
Don't compare two things
That don't hold the same value
Night differs from day
And sun is brighter than moon
Though they give light to the world
In this vast cosmos
Each one is a star that shines
Brighter than others
But none holds supremacy
Every star has unique light
I paint my canvass
With my own color palette
Using my own strokes
Don't compare me to others
I was made to be different
Get off your high horse
Respect is reciprocal
Do not command me
To do things against my will
You're no master to rule me
