-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.
