The poem(s) are below...



I know we've been taught to believe
that it's wrong to willfully deceive.
But raw truth causes cutting pain,
and friendships are never the same.
If rumors about a friend are spoken
deny them, pay them not a token.
If you're asked to judge another,
bypass his flaws, be as his brother.
Nothing good flows from words stark
hide them, bury them in the dark.
I confess none of this is anything new,
only affirming what you already knew.

Hello Paul … so often gossip with little substance grows on the grapevine and soon everything is blown out of proportion. Your verse is a lesson for these gossipers Paul - Lindsay

Well said. I agree with what you wrote and wish all would follow. Not many follow although these things are repeated often

An excellent message, Paul! It's one we have heard before but need a reminder every now and then. Blessings, Kim M
