Types of Conflict #Poems Set 1: Vs Person and Vs Society

I wanted to talk about the various types of conflict in fiction.  I was ready to go and put my thoughts down for all of these.  Even did some research and came to a conclusion that stomped on my brakes.  This topic has been done a lot, so what else can I say about it?  I need to be fresh and let the discussion in the comments handle the rest.  Well, I do have that ‘Poems’ category and there are six categories that I found.  Let’s roll!

Person Vs. Person

Archenemies and rivals
Circling each other
Gathering strength for the fight
That is on the horizon
A most basic of tales
That we see on page and screen
And the core of some games
Perhaps the easiest to understand
Because we see the clearest foe
One who wants to do harm
Or stop another from victory
A being of flesh and blood
Like we face in daily life

Person Vs. Society

The rebel from inside
Or an outsider busting walls
Facing a system
That crushes many underfoot
An uprising shall occur
Once a hidden truth revealed
Toying with ideas
Of morality and law
Showing how far some go
In the name of blind stability
Both on the page
And in our world

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
