A catastrophe is a hard thing to bear
Like having a best friend say goodbye
Life sometimes is so unfair

A wave approaches without any care
As it crashes on land causing people to die
A catastrophe is a hard thing to bear

The old man stares at a young bird soaring with flare
Wishing that he too can fly
Life sometimes is so unfair

There is movement in the air as the ground starts to tear
A big cloud of dust rises up into the sky
A catastrophe is a hard thing to bear

A model strokes her long glamorous hair
As a victim of bulling runs off to cry
Life sometimes is so unfair

A newlywed widow looks down at the casket to stare
At her husband whose skin is all dry
A catastrophe is a hard thing to bear
It makes life sometimes seem so unfair


The author's comments:
The purpose of this poem is to highlight the tragedies of the world and the personal struggles of everyday people. Since at the time I was going through a tough time, I though writing about this would help relieve some of the trouble. (P.S.: I am fine now)

This is a villianelle which I wrote for my creative writing class.

hey! nice one. good comparions. i like the irony and dark humour in the phrase "newly wed widow". the title sums up the whole poem very well. it has a good flow ....but after a point the rhyme scheme feels a little forced . also, i think you mean 'bullying' and not 'bulling'. :) don't worry about all that though, i tend to make the same mistakes. on the whole: great work and keep writing XD oh and i'm happy to hear that you are fine now :D

Well, a villianelle is kind of hard to explain. It basically has a very complex rhyming scheme invovling only two rhymes, like A and B.

ItS A little too straightforward for me and the rhyming makes it seem kind of childiish in relation to such a serious topic. Nonetheless I love the comparisons you make and the overall message of the poem. Keep it up
