Poem Hunter
Charity Thou Art A Lie
LDG Lynette Dias Gouveia (August 19,1976 / )

Charity Thou Art A Lie

Charity thou art a lie,
A toy of women,
A pleasure of certain men.
In the presence of justice,
Lo, the walls of the temple
Are visible
Through thy form of sudden shadows.

Again beautifully written for those who have lost faith. Keep up the good work Lynette.
There is such a strong aura of truthfulness in your poems, this one is no exception. Great writing and great message. H
