Acrostic Poetry

Deriving Strength and Courage

A being is well celebrated when love and compassion conduct him;
Oh, deeply elated does one feel if answer to hatred becomes love!
We’ve loved the great art of revering so our souls might bliss out, with joy brim;
And by utilising love’s powered force, we’ve reached as high as yon fine dove.
If someone detests us for the kind of men we are, we’ll not grow grim;
What gives us pure pleasure is after all loving those who do abhor us;
So you and sure I shall esteem those who hate us but not once defeat, trim
The strength we’ve attained hitherto by just being loved by those we’d hate, cuss.
Well, while it’s true whiling away time’s an option now had by both of us,
And loving each I do suppose a sound choice that’s prescribed, dear associate,
If someone does chance on our souls to be flatlined with worldly affairs, fuss,
We deeply should proffer what I shall call smiles that possess no demeaned cut.
What gives us sheer confidence will adorn us with happiness. Great plus!
So you and of course I’ll remain in this state now, thus raising the sane joys;
And great will our life be henceforth, like each flower in this great, adored truss.
Oh, courage we’ll lose not, for losing that’d only mean losing pride, flair, poise.

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
