The Power of Peace

No love was lost between me and them.
Though an initiator, I fell out
with them all.
They treated me as an adversary,
maybe a person of no consequence too.

I suffered a lot of humiliation
but I never retorted.
Exchanged civility
when prompted.
Maintained a safe distance otherwise.

Slowly they seem to be undoing
what they did overzealously.
Is wisdom slowly dawning on them?
Small overtures of rapprochement
are slowly becoming the norm of the day.

I do not retort.
I do not go head over heels.
Just normal civility.
No reminder of bitter days.
I am just allowing them to be normal.

Things I hope will be normal
to everybody's advantage
some day
not too far.
That is the power of peace.
