The Lost Key

We die in shame as the links between our countries are securely locked.
Blocked by the prejudice of divisions through arrogance of language and culture.
Only the Key of Peace can release this stranglehold and open doors for our world.

  3. A very relevant and clever bit of micro fiction James. The “arrogance of language and culture” – like that line very much.

  5. Powerful sentiment, and so timely too. Interesting take on the prompt, making me think about who is locked out, and who is doing the locking.
