Keep it alive

It lay in tatters, besmirched and tarnished

A few words thrown carelessly, without thought

Was all it took to blot what was spotless before

The words are now traveling with the winds

Scattered like pollen dust, everywhere

That is all it takes nowadays, to spoil and blacken

The character and reputation of a person

It doesn’t matter if they are guilty or not

Just spread the rumors and you have done the harm

Now even if you beautify, and adorn the same

Put flowers, ribbons and tassels to make it look pretty

The harm that has been done, can seldom be undone

People are good at remembering the faults and flaws

It would take another lifetime to build it again.
