frangible

A Chapter by freelancejouster

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

the problem with humans

is that they're so easily broken,

their emotions so brittle, so toyed with.

 

all it takes is one swift blow -

kicking seems to work best,

but maybe that's just my preferance -

and they collapse into mania.

it's true people can be so sensitive and any small comment is a blow to them, either because they have low self-esteem as it is, or because of ego. nice and succinct.

It's weird how all it takes is a few lines to describe it. I liked this one too, though think it could be improved, as there is so much that can be written on this subject. Yes humans are fragile, it so easy to break us, but then again, they can also be strong at the same time.

I love this, its true and it shows how you feel. I can relate to it :)

I didn't even know this was a word... I like the entire idea of this book, and I think you should continue building on it for sure.

I like the way you implement this word into the poem. The abrupt end with the different rhyme-scheme is great, and it leaves a sort of hollow echo as it ends. It's very creative. Good job, 95/100!

nice concept - is this a combination word of tangible and fragile?

we are born very frangible :)

as we gain knowledge - we learn how to manage the emotions of our baby selves...
