Haiku 251-255/365:2013 | Our Strength

we threw stones at them

they fired bullets for poems

our truth a sentence


binding together

despite the chaos we bare

leaves of the same tree


metal tanks are fertile

with heated rounds of hatred

surrounding our homes


young men brave their fears

with rocks and staffs dressed in white

robes prepared to stain


sustain our beliefs

we stood as giants on mountains

in small fragile frames


our stones were our hearts

their bullets personified

hatred against love
