Author requests article critique
Someone innocently passes by,
causing wicked gossip to fly.
It became quite hot and heavy
like white lies gushing from a bevy.
A person instantly in disgrace
without any mercy or grace.
The news spread and so did the tale
like remnants at the rummage sale.
We did not mean to cause such harm
as we totally ignored God's holy alarm.
What can we say in our defense?
Satan used our tongues to cause offense.
It's best to be cautious of what you say.
Never speak before you take time to pray.
By Deborah Russell

Very poignant message in this poem. It is to be hoped that many people will read it and remember it. It's not nice to hurt others with lies. Thanks for sharing this short but serious poem.
