Is this the dark side of the story?


A wounded soldier walks with his gun towards the enemy area.
And he found an enemy wounded soldier with his gun
But no ammunition.
He cried in difficulty; 'Please do not shoot me adjutant as I am helpless.'
Then the other soldier said; 'We are friends now and no doubt about that
But tell me Sergeant where do we go without any hindrance? '

* Really there are no enemies among human beings, all are brother & sister soldiers against the cold war of life.

    The enemy ceases to be the enemy when you confront him without weapon. He becomes a brother who must be protected, not destroyed. This parable about peace is powerfully penned. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    Excellent. War is indeed the dark side of the story. Your comment is as powerful
    and evocative as your poem. Perhaps, more so.

    Always your friend,
