To me, this is a perfect senryu becuz you incite a riot of ideas in the reader's mind, which transforms the well-chosen 17 syllables into a complete symphony of thought. On one hand, I see that individuality must be fought for & protected & something which we are uncompromising about. On the other hand, we can't have this create a situation like your graphic, where individuality is blocking people out (or in). The goal would hopefully be to embrace each other's individuality & not have it be a dividing line (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

i agree with Margie on the "blocking people out"--
sometimes we can be so stubborn to be individual...we refuse compromise or company...and think of our individuality as some god, some idol...and we pray too hard to it.
well done, Phill...you give us so much food for thought in this brief senryu style...

This is perfect. So funny how as we're growing up we try so hard to fit in only to discover later in life that it's more important to stand out. Those who stand out for the right reasons are gold.
