how often do we stop to consider

all the seeds we've sown today? the kinds of

repercussions we've chosen to

validate and lead us on the way–ever

eastward with self-righteous aspirations,

slowly selling out when life's troubles overwhelm our

tenuous hold on moral obligations

Thanks for strapping in and going along for the ride today!

Another acrostic idea that came about during a conversation with two of my sons.

    Oh, this is just fantastic. Show-off. As ever...got me thinking deeply. Well bloody done.

    This is an A++ acrostic! Perfectly paired lines and vertical word

  • Oh my, that ending made me stop and stare and reread those lines. I think all of us would be able to relate to this. Loved your poem!

  • Your beginning encourages readers to keep reading and it is well done.

    Brilliant take on the crux of the word

    That must have been a deep conversation to produce this brilliant treatise on the death of ideals. Wonderful, thought provoking poetry like always, Heather!
