War and Peace

War and Peace

Arguments and battles aside
Fighting words flying on wind
taking patience its passenger
Tempers calming into silence
and stillness descending
Lacking leverage a war lost
A battle without a winner
Exhausted and spent
Peace is finally declared
Empathy for enemy evident

Word Prompts

Patient - Word of the Day
Empathy - RDP

    There is no winner in a war anyway.
