Let’s Be Friends, Not Enemies: Photo Challenge

from Shichigoro Shingo

I held out a flower to the lady soldier,

Aware that she saw me as her enemy.

It’s rubbish to think that our differences

Mean that we must always disagree.

But, man hasn’t always learned to love

Others unlike him, much to my chagrin.

Instead, they’ve let their differences

Bring the world nearly to a violent end.

She looked at the flower I offered her,

And I relaxed when I saw her grin.

I knew then she wasn’t still an adversary,

And that I had just gained a new friend.

Written for the Photo Challenge #302 from Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie. Also, for the Three Things Challenge #142 from Pensitivity 101: man, rubbish, gain.
