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.

    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

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
