How dare you?
Who are you to place yourself so high above me?
Are you a divine being? a God?
What makes you so superior to me?
You have done nothing to deserve my respect,
and yet you try to place yourself in a better rank.
You are nothing to me,
so don't you dare expect me to honor you.
Respect is not a right, it is a privilege.
to all those people who think they did the world a favor just by being born

If you're going to abide by "respect is a privilege", expect it to go both ways - you've not earned the respect of the target of your poem and they're treating you accordingly. It's up to you if you want to give a shit about some moron's respect, and this poem reads like hypocrisy, because you seem to demand respect (Who are you to place yourself so high above me?) while declaring loudly and proudly that they've nothing to deserve your respect. I agree with a comment above me. Yuo do sound ironically arrogant.

As for the poem's construction, free verse does permit rambling, but the way you've arranged your words reads like a blog post.

It wasn't my intention to offend anyone, or sound arrogent.
I was just overwelmed with anger and wrote this to express my frustation.
I am still unfamiliar with which category to put my poems under. If my poems sound like a blog post that wasn't my motive.

That's ok. I'd probably put this in the vignette category. It's suitable for less structured free verses, that's where I usually put my spur of the moment free verse poetry.
Secondly, and now this isn't criticism, just a suggestion. Perhaps try to look into different types of poetry, their structure and rhythm. I've grievances with most dA poetry, because young poets often seem to neglect the craft, and I think that emotion coupled with a decent rhythm and structure could actually end up sublime some day. Thanks for understanding, I might've been a bit adasf foot in mouth in the original comment, too. :lol:

Respect should be earned. I don't respect anyone until I feel they deserve it, however I'm still polite to everyone I meet, at least at first.

Sometimes it's not about why or if they've placed themselves above you, but why you've placed yourself below them.
