*0003 Still The Fight Goes On

This is a wane & wax poem - each line decreases from 10 to 1 syllables and then increases again for 1 - 10. The last line of the wane phase becomes the first line of the wax phase. The resulting poem has an elegant shape and symmetry.

Still the fight goes on nothing is resolved
and all these conflicts have been in vain
against themselves against the world
have found some reasons to fight
since time commenced all men
that has plagued the earth
to all the strife
seek an end
come to
let's
come to
seek an end
to all the strife
that has plagued the earth.
since time commenced all men
have found some reasons to fight
against themselves against the world
and all these conflicts have been in vain
Still the fight goes on nothing is resolved

Yeah, of course. Your thought is great regarding the situation of man's mental approach in the field of conflict without reason. Most of them fight to solve a problem, whereas war itself is a problem. Nice write.
