gave a contrast of diversity.
One image showed yellow: happiness, pride
Another image green: weathering Envy and jealousy
The blue image: sweet and calm
A wobbled crutch leaned in its gaze
A wobbled crutch that held a boy
his cracked window
only viewed red images—
his view of the world only one colour
the embodiment of a fallen soldier
yet the mindset of a crippled kid
the yellow images faded darker.
Seeing the hatred and war overseas
only changed his perspective
when a yellow or blue image would emerge in his sight
he’d turn it red, he’d force it bright.
His crutch had leaned, snapping its wooden structure
when a pink image emerged
and he saw another man who knew of his puncture.
They help each other, one at a time, fading
their angry red cracked window sights
to happy green; tranquil and solid.
