BACKBONE

Bond of true friendship


Always held in esteem

Charity even in poverty

Kindles love and affection

Boastful acts of vanity

Often leads to calamity

Nothing but the modesty

Eternal backbone of Humanity
 
For Acrostic only

  1. So very true Saras --- without backbone, especially where humanity is concerned ... there will never be nothing but wars ... and more wars about anything and nothing. Thank you for joining us.

  2. A great acrostic and being unassuming and humble is an individuals testing time and a true judgement of his strength.

  3. Good poetry.Don't you think,for the sake of acrostic,one fumbles for words or fits them in?

    Yes, but that is the challenge! The words have to fit in in their own right rather than getting inserted for Acrostic requirement.
