So I wrote this about a year and a half ago, but still thought it was (sort of) worth publishing. Anyway, tell me what you think!

The Irony of Life

July 11, 2018

FREE WRITING

9
An argument was once held
between two broken souls
And quite suddenly it
spiralled out of control

“You don’t understand!”
Said the senior as he spat
“Of love and of hate,
you’re too ignorant for that!”

He thought he had it right
and that she was too young
Age equals understanding
But of that he was quite wrong

The young girl she stared
A flower in the dark
And opened up to speak
Ready to say her part

“The world isn’t perfect,
And neither is life.
But maybe we can learn
To live without strife.”

The old man and the girl
The painful contrast of life
Opened up to each other
Showing all their buried knives

And when they look at each other
Nothing was the same
But when they looked into their eyes
They each held a broken flame

A flicker of recognition
A spark in the night
A similar encounter
A shining ray of light

    First, I love the rhymes you included in this poem. The idea was super cool and really creative. I also really liked how you wrapped it up.
    Secondly, I featured you in my latest piece, "Recommending Some Amazing WriteTheWorld Writers". If you would like, you can check it out.
    Again, this piece was really awesome:)
