Torture (Acrostic) - Poem by cecil hickman

Take these thoughts within your mind.
One should know what suffering is.
Realizing if you are questioning the act,
Then it must be cruelty in some form.
Universally if it causes suffering at all,
Reality is that the act must be torment.
Exacting the realization, this act is, Torture.

    Excellent acrostic, your words are absolutely true, I wonder what kind of person is able to torture another, and sometimes we torture ourselves with horrid thoughts. More realistically it is the constant torture of mankind by mankind that is dispicable and absolutely disgusting. The good thing is that a time will come when we all stand at the alter and the book will be opened once and for all. At that time I believe we will answer for the atrosities we have caused in our lifetime. Wonderful poem, makes one think and hopefully act in a positive way. Thank you Cecil for this poem.--Melvina-- (Report)Reply
