Midnight Ponderings -- Kyrielle
        I sit and wonder about life       
   I'm not sure what it holds in store  
     So much pain misery and strife    
  Was I meant to do so much more? 
         I sit and write about feelings       
       Express more than I had before     
  Try to make sense of what life brings 
   Was I meant to do so much more?  
           An observer afraid to try           
         To my fear I say nevermore       
         To write on, my fear I deny        
  Was I meant to do so much more? 
Author's Notes:
A Kyrielle is a French form of rhyming poetry written in quatrains (a stanza consisting of 4 lines), 
and each quatrain contains a repeating line or phrase as a refrain (usually appearing as the last 
line of each stanza). Each line within the poem consists of only eight syllables. There is no limit 
to the amount of stanzas a Kyrielle may have, but three is considered the accepted minimum. 

Some popular rhyming schemes for a Kyrielle are: aabB, ccbB, ddbB, with B being the repeated 
line, or abaB, cbcB, dbdB.

Mixing up the rhyme scheme is possible for an unusual pattern of: axaZ, bxbZ, cxcZ, dxdZ, etc. 
with Z being the repeated line. 

The rhyme pattern is completely up to the poet.
I underlined the rhyme scheme used, let me know what you think its been a while since I wrote one of these.

Very well done.  Putting aside one's fear is not an easy thing to do, but how else will we reach our full potential?
