In the arena

After Galatians 5:16-26

Gladiators approach each other
oblivious of the roars of the crowd
sight more important than sound
in this context, a clash
then silence
as sounds clash and strike,
rings echo across the arena.
The crowd grows silent,
watching violence clash
with peace, knowing a choice,
must be made.
