Four Letter Words


On Sunday’s I’m posting poetry written by my mother-in-law, Bettie Lou. Writing poetry was a form of therapy after losing her husband and then her youngest son in 1985.

Four Letter Words

I must stop using those four letter words.

It is a sign of a deficient vocabulary.

I’ll drop hate, love, hope, and pray.

And save the others for the hard times.
