Recognize the Difference

via Daily Prompt: Recognize

I have been told
that if I want
to attract royalty,
then I must
be a queen.
But, I have seen the sovereign
rule like dogs.
And, I have witnessed peasants
behave like kings.
Status does not determine
the core of a man.
It merely gives him
self-righteous permission
to be who he has always been,
exempting himself from
the checks and balances
of the commonplace.
As for queens,
they are born,
not made.
