targets a group,
ignore all proof.
runs silent show.
words whispers say,
swims around brain,
to create pain.
Cover both ears,
avoid sad tears,
keep lips so shut,
judgements can cut.
blind aware eyes,
Strong focused mind,
remain so kind,
starve the unfair,
choose not to care.
Let it all go,
heart starts to glow,
facts do not hide.
Sounds loud and pure,
– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy
Beautifully written! I like how your poems always have such great rhyming words. I also loved the message in the poem. 😊💕
Thank you so much, Anjali. Happy you enjoyed. Truly means a lot to me.💕
My pleasure 😊
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!!
Oops that should read: vibe “: gave to the verses”
Thank you so much. Happy you liked it. I love how you pay such good attention to the details, Suzette. Thanks so much for that, my friend.💕

So happy to hear that, David. Thank you so much.💕
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!!! 😝
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.🤣🤣🤣
Girl Grace you are too funny! Thanks so much for the chuckles my friend. 😂😝🤣

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!
Im so happy you enjoyed it. Gossip can be so toxic. Thank you so much. Have a wonderful day.💕
I love this
Thanks so much.💕
