Types of Conflict #Poems Set 3: Vs Self and Vs Supernatural

Last set of Conflict poems.ย  Enjoy!

Person Vs. Self

A struggle within the flesh
Deeper than the bones
Pulsing along the veins
Neurons
And the soul
The problem is not a ‘them’
It is a ‘me’
The hero is the villain
Battling to become a better self
A conflict we all have had

Person Vs. Supernatural

A threat beyond nature’s scope
Yet still part of the world
Ghosts and goblins in the shadows
Vampires feasting on supporting cast
The eerie ones thrive here
Pushing heroes towards darkness
Forcing them to think
Outside the box of reality and rules
Some in realms of magic and monsters
Where more than specters are along the path
That a bitter destiny has forged

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.
