Never goes away – Quatern

This feeling never goes away

I have trouble trusting myself

Inadequate, incompetent

Feel like a kid playing pretend

Come on confidence, fill me up

This feeling never goes away

Past and present always collide

A storm of doubt brewing inside

An island with no shore in sight

Disconnected, trying to fit in

This feeling never goes away

A mighty struggle everyday

Where’s the tunnel and that bright light?

Wishing for rainbows and sunshine

But life’s never a fairy tale

This feeling never goes away

Dear Readers,

You just read a Quatern! It is French style of poetry and has the following rules:

  1. 4 four-lines stanzas (quatrains)
  2. There is a repeated line (refrain) which is the 1st line of the first stanza, 2nd line of the second stanza, 3rd line of the third stanza and the last line of the fourth stanza.
  3. There is no fixed rhyme scheme (hurrah!) but most of the poems I saw in this style seem to employ rhyming couplets in some form so I have vaguely done the same.

Hope you all enjoyed it !
