An Acrostic poem uses the letters in a topic word to begin each line

All lines of the poem should relate to the topic word



Care for the soul is a primary gift

Offer your thanks and gratitude to God each day

Mercy and forgiveness liberates a heart and its subject

Prayer is the most powerful force in the world

Almsgiving and charity should be a natural response

Solace and comfort for the wounded and afflicted

Salve and balm for the lonely and broken hearted

Inspire those around you, to be all that they can be

One kind deed can make a person's day

Nurture and encourage the youth of today

A fine Acrostic and the subject couldn't be more worthy. Compassion is sorely lacking in our world. Kindness seems so foreign to so many, sadly. Meaningful poem, Peter! ~Best, Elizabeth

The need for compassion has never been greater. In every generation, this nation faces crisis. Our challenge is to send the message of compassion far and wide, the reaffirmation of love and peace. Your voice of compassion emerges, Peter. This is a high moral order as well. Blessed Be!

Oh Peter,

This is one of your finest yet. It is wisdom and as a Acrostic poem the first word is more exaggerated and simplifies the message. You won another one Peter. The compassion of man needs to cross boundaries more often.
Thank you!

You are preaching to the choir I imagine, Peter, but these truisms need to be said often and loudly. Thank you for taking the time to alert us to our true calling.

One kind deed can make a person's day - absolutely, mainly the day of the one doing the kind deed. Lovely poem!

An absolutely GORGEOUS Acrostic, Peter ... filled with ALL that Compassion embodies!

Second to last line:
I believe that One Kind Deed can fulfill a person's destiny.

Love & Light,

Perfection in verse; sadly, compassion is lacking...maybe your writes will stir the heart and make us step out of our comfort zone and help those in need. Thank you!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

you hit the nail on the head explaining in beauty the subject of compassion. Once I have been to our VA hospitals, showering the vets with love. I was never and I do mean never the same. The love there and at nursing homes raises the ultimate question of love that will we, can we step out of our comfort zone to touch the lives of the smiling ones who are dieing or have serious illness. I feel time stands still when I encounter that kind of total beauty. Thank you my friend....My visists had the greatest awakening of love...Beautifuly stated my friend and pened so excellent
