Poetry: “Flags of different colors”

A little thing about nationalism

***~***~***~***

Flags of different colors

To split mankind
Up in pockets
Groups of people
To belong
Bring comfort
Sense of purpose
But
To build too high
The walls
Make “you” and “them”
Side to root for
Lines in sand
Flags made shields
In battle
Between same blood
And bones
There is loss
In division too

Yes, raise your flags
Feel pride
For the good you have
But keep your heart
And hands
Still open for
Flags of different colors
