What is the theme of your poem?

The theme of my poem is compassion: I looked at a children photo that taught the camera was a weapon and stood up her arms! (the photo is attached below)

How would you like people to respond when they read or watch your poetry reading?

Well, they’ll respond better if the photo comes with the poem print, but anyway the poem expresses a feeling of the way a person really wants to show itself to someone else!
