Gossip

Vibrating loops,
targets a group,
entangles truths,
ignore all proof.

Floating around,
intrusive sound,
ego echoes,
runs silent show.

Voices replay,
words whispers say,
swims around brain,
to create pain.

Cover both ears,
avoid sad tears,
keep lips so shut,
judgements can cut.

Vibrating loops,
energies swoop,
blind aware eyes,
assumptions fly.

Strong focused mind,
remain so kind,
starve the unfair,
choose not to care.

Let it all go,
heart starts to glow,
sentences slide,
facts do not hide.

Sounds loud and pure,
miracle cure,
balanced within,
quietly grin.

– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy

  1. Beautifully written! I like how your poems always have such great rhyming words. I also loved the message in the poem. πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•

  2. Well penned Grace!! There is a cycle to gossip that does “entangle.” Love the musical vibe to gave to the verses and your skill with select repitition:
    – vibrating loops” “sounds” whispers, “silent” “echoes” …marvelous take on the prompt!!

  3. Great poem Grace. It seems like gossip is the hot topic for the day! So many have gotten trapped and burned by those who have “diarrhea of the mouth!” UGH!!! 😝

    1. Thanks so much. Yes. I noticed that too. Thankfully mine was inspired by the prompt and not an actual situation. I truly detest gossip, unless it’s celebrity gossip.🀣🀣🀣

  4. Gossip is an insidious, invasive beast! May we surround ourselves with others of strong minds and remain balanced within. πŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’ž

  5. Whatever may be the gossips….facts do not hide. So well penned, Grace! Love its composition πŸ‘β€οΈ

  6. That last stanza ties everything together so exquisitely. Beautifully crafted as always, dear Grace. I love the wisdom behind your poetic talent, they work together so perfectly 🀍🀍🀍

  7. Wow, what a powerful piece of poetry! The lines about “vibrating loops” and “intrusive sound” really hit home for me. It’s so true that our thoughts can play such a big role in shaping our emotions and well-being. The advice to “cover both ears” and cultivate a “strong focused mind” is spot on. It’s a great reminder to be mindful of our thoughts and to work towards finding peace and positivity in our lives. I feel so inspired after reading this!

    1. That’s so sweet. I would love to but unfortunately right now, my schedule won’t permit for me to do collaborations. I will definitely reach out to you once my schedule clears up a bit.πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ’•
