Intention

That is like a good intention 
But watch that bad expression. 
It draws so much attention. 
Creating high friction on peoples impression. 
It would be an amputation of your reputation
Capable of your expulsion not minding 
The parable of your redemption.
Good intention plus bad expression 
Is like an explosive. 
Its explosion will leave bad impression.

    This is one of my favs by you...So true that good intentions mean nothing if expression is not love...Good job here.

    'an amputation of your reputation' - nice expression. And you're right, good intention can backfire if it is delivered badly. Lovely verse Fisayo!

    very good imagery and language.I hope you don't mind if I say you should make it "leave a bad impression" And maybe remove the word "like" in the first sentence,, See how you feel about it I enjoyed your poem very much,Kate

    YOU paint a clear picture, dear Fisayo! "Good intention plus bad expression is like an explosive. Its explosion will leave bad impression" The proper approach is HIGHLY important <3
