VITRIOL

Such Venom and Ill will doesn’t befit you.

That’s not who you are! 

Tartness and Ruthlessness doesn’t become you.

 

There is no need to be  Injurious and Obnoxious!

Indulging in malicious gossip is Loathsome!

 

This is not who you are!

 

So...

 

Why such cruelty?

Why such viciousness?

Why such malevolence toward your fellow woman man?

 

You are you and I am me.

You have your opinion and I have mine.

Let’s be kind enough to be willing to agree on disagreeing!

    You said it, Laura. Don't know if this is aimed at anyone in particular, but no matter, we should all agree to disagree!

        If everyone read your
        poem, “Shine”, they
        would need sunglasses
        not to be blinded!

                      hi there ok then so this is directed to a certain person which is something I have done on another site which is ok by me as you do it with poetic ways not another my fav lines are these for me ''There is no need to be  Injurious and Obnoxious!
                      Indulging in malicious gossip is Loathsome'', good words you pin together there to make your point ,,,zigs

                      • Laura

                        Zigs,

                        Thank you for the read,
                        comment and saving it
                        into your favorites!

                        Yes, I’m especially proud
                        of those lines too. There IS a reason for the deliberate choice of font and position of certain words.

                        It most certainly was to make a point and to emphasize the message!

                        Regards...

                        ~Laura~

                        Nice ‘acrostic like’ “VITRIOL” interspersed throughout your your write. Good work Laura.

                      • Laura

                        Thank you Gary!

                        hi laura, sometimes we get so wound up with peoples ways , and people can certainly frustrate and upset us. i like how you ask questions , questioning why the need for their behaviour. why is a good question , and there never seems to be a good enough answer , these people just seem to be this way , for some reason

                        i love these ending lines, you make a very good point

                        You are you and I am me.
                        You have your opinion and I have mine.
                        Let’s be human enough who will agree to disagree!

                        great piece of writing laura ..!

                        Cruelty rears its ugly head at every turn. You have addressed it appropriately with this one. Next time make sure your "handbag" is full of pennies!

                          Amen. Let’s be adult and disagree, dynamite finisher.
                          No need to animosity, a waste of precious time.
                          Well said hunny.

                          Maybe it's been said before, I don't know since I'm plowed.

                          Love breeds love, hate breeds hate.
