Conflict


Like an old soldier
I certain go,
into a land of never glow.

A reflection of some life
that's past,
a place quite starless,
cold as glass, hard as iron.

With the hope
of hope invading...
just a fight
that's unrelinquished,
the scope of brain
not yet extinquished,
a conflict
of a no win low,
a reason for which way to go.

    like it or not, conflict is a part of the choices that we face throughout life
    as long as we are able to minimize the impact, I think the conflict is not a big problem
    more than that, I like the way you express conflict in your poem
    a work which gives a lot of thought and possibilities of the various aspects, at least from my point of personal (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
