Acrostic ...

Jaded interpretations
Evolving from
An inborn sense of
Low self-esteem
Operating in
Undercurrents of
Sinister inability to rise above
Yesterday’s failure to comprehend

Well my dear friend, I could have sworn I commented on this when I read it the first time, but I find it tucked into my file of "must read agains"...when I found a sec. I do love the way you do the acrostic. Wow is this smoothly defined within the perameeters and confines of the form...nary a jerk. Webster would be insanely jealous of your creative genius. This is terrific and worth saving.

Love and hugs,

Am I glad we are freinds!!! When you deflect, you do it with class.

Jealousy is borderline madness, causes people do shameful things.....
not worth the emotional output. Self esteem, comes from within, but sometimes takes a lifetime to learn...

Low self esteem can cause personal wars.........
so sad
ignore em
you are some wonder you have jealous fans.....such a shame tho......

Dear Richard,

Jealousy is a toxic poison to body, mind and spirit. You've described it well in your acrostic.

Love & Light always and in all ways,

Dear Richard, I couldn't agree with you more. Jealousy destroys everything it comes in contact with. A powerful write. Unfortunately it is not just the fact that some lack low self esteem that creates the green-eye monster. Well done! Holly

A Fantastic acrostic Richard!
If only, we could just help the jealous ones see this light, and oh, if only, we could just help the jealous one understand...his own...

Reviewed by Alexandra* OneLight*® Authors & Creations
Jealousy is a sentiment as destructive as corrosive acid, but much less so to the ones it is directed at, than to those who harbour it - for they fail to recognize that the source is, really, within themselves... low self-esteem, insecurities, self-victimization... and yet, also within themselves (and only within themselves) is the power to change it into a source of wholeness. Perfect acrostic, my dear friend, and outstanding analysis.

A good message to all!!! One should never continue to dwell on yesterdays' failure. One should always continue to move forward and looking toward commitments for tomorrows. Who cares if anyone fails yesterdays, it's the success in one's future that counts most.

Wonderful write with a great message!!!!!

Yes sir! There's mothing worse than a jaded slice of acid from someone who blames another for their lack of self esteem. You always round the eqations off nicely with words.
