Against Such Things

For O.S.I. Prompt-Tolerance
(This poetry prompt is done in acrostic)

Virtue n.) Specifically, moral excellence; integrity of character; purity of soul; performance of duty...
T olerance..from the top of the sea saw I hear you call-your hair in mid air looking down on me-

O h tolerance, I say squinting.. is no virtue at all.. just patience, watered down ya see..

L evel..isn't as lovely sounding- but, it's not a one way street..good for me.. oh but not for you-

E asy now, while I'm hopping..my knees are bent- but I'll be hoping.. you'll be hearing me too &

R emember, don't you run out in the street...

A lign..happened to come to mind, cause all my thoughts get crossed...

N ow a plumb line's best for tracking, as the wind could blow anywhere

C ause we..we won't have a foundation..like the board that goes under me & you

E asier if it's a two way street..and remember, don't ya take candy from strangers

But the fruit of the Spirit is-
love,
joy,
peace,
patience,
kindness,
goodness,
faithfulness,
gentleness,
self-control; against such things there is no law -Ga 5: 22

"against such things there is no law " -

ur poem is brimming with content-

there is no law against two very important things ( in my view )

~ thought & feeling / the brick & mortar of morality --

many thanks for a great write-up and a very good prompt..
