A Collection of Opposites

Somewhat different from what I’ve been posting recently, but I’ve tried my hand at some poetry.

Utilising a poetry engine taught by my Creative Writing tutor, I have started generating poems comprised of opposing themes and imagery.

Without further adieu, here is the first;

Ancient and decrepit,

glistening and bright,

wise as glass,

yet they are spoiled,




Objects never built to last.

Not always to behold

or look at.


History is to replace,

Modernity is to be feared.


You should live to be old,

it is a race to beat.


Shrewdness is obsolete.


It is a composite.
