When brought together
Tastes vary wildly with tongue
Flavors of wide world
Friendship bowl awaits
Belief grows, sacred trust forms
Benefit of doubt
When hard time comes down
Testing the strong crimson bond
You choose knife or bowl?
Friendship is a risk you take by giving the other person a benefit of doubt. You get to know them better and gradually a bond forms, based on trust and belief. It doesn't matter which race you belong, what color you are or what tastes you have in life. The basis of the bond goes way too deeper than this. It's a crimson one.. the color close to blood.. to heart! What matters is the understanding you have for each other and to what extent you will be ready to stand for something so close to your heart. Difficult times challenge you, and test you. Will you get through it together choosing the bowl of friendship or will you choose the knife to break the bond and escape the fire leaving your friend behind?
