People Power-An Acrostic

By Willy B

Past deeds must not go unnoticed
Each of us must make a stand
Old world power should no longer be
Proof of the pudding is in the eating
Life is short and we must be free to live
Every living thing has a right to be

Positive growth will bring us together
Our world is just that… ours
We must tell the leaders what we need
Ever increasing tension is upon us
Rights for all should be equal.

    Could you change Ever increasing to Ever-increasing instead?

    I like the title and the way you developed this theme to show that the Governments are the servants of the people, not just the high and the mighty. The poetry displays what is called righteous anger about the past, yet hope for the future.

      Wow, thanks again, Denis

      You certainly have an eagle-eye for grammar and that, my friend is always appreciated by me. Thanks again for your help and for taking the time to be so constructive for me.

        I already knew about ever-increasing as the correct term, yet it comes in handy to go to the grammarly-dot-com website and register there. Log in, open a new document and paste your poetry text there. Once done, leave it there. Exit that document and open a second document. This time edit it as grammarly suggests if correct in its corrections or suggestions. Once edited, I then take the text I’ve copied and I paste that into the original file on my computer. I use Wordpad. I update my rtf file and the backup copy, too. I then upload the edited version to the website. I add a free photo from websites like unsplash-dot-com and pixabay-dot-com and gratisography-dot-com and get the poem online that way. This site we’re using now was recommended yesterday on the QUORA website at quora-dot-com and that’s why you can also find my poems.

        Denis.

    You are so right. The leaders seem to be doing just what they want to do, regardless of whether it’s right for the people or not. People are rising up these days, more and more, and let’s hope it works. This is a really excellent acrostic, Willy, well done! Sandra

      Thank you, Sandra.

      Sadly, in my opinion, many of the leaders are just rich brats (well old brats) with a chip on their shoulders and take it out on the population once the hit the top job. It’s shameful.
