#Acrostic (double): Critical Change

Critical Change
-Linda Lee Lyberg


Cutting words voiced
Rip through a sensitive soul
In haste without thought people hurl
The words that hurt, not heal the wound
Insensitive fools plod on in ignorance
Caring not for other’s feelings or ideas
And never care about the damage left
Lack of concern for their fellow man.

Can man evolve beyond hate?
Have we no moral compass?
All people have inherent rights
Not to live in mortal fear for life
God looks on with a heavy heart
Eclipse obscures caring souls


Linda Lee Lyberg
Author’s Note: My first acrostic poem. Acrostic Poetry is where the first letter of each line spells a word, usually using the same words as in the title.

  1. Hmmm…. I see an agreement with my own sentiments here! If you can’t say anything nice, have a stick of gum. Your words rock artistic, and the artwork is stunning. Nice combo.

  2. My mother once said to me, if you can’t say anything nice then swallow your words and see how they taste….the message in this is wonderful. We all need to be more civil to each other.
