"Be Your Own Master"

Gather all the strength that you can muster;
the road to the future is just right ahead.
Look straight ahead; be you own master.

Why do we need to fear a disaster?
Aren't we just creating our own dread?
Gather all the strength that you can muster.

Look inside your heart; delve deeper.
You might just find a little light; a seed.
Look straight ahead; be your own master.

Fear not the approach of the reaper.
Believe in yourself; follow your creed.
Gather all the strength that you can muster.

Isn't life like a giant roller coaster?
Going up and down; making our eyes see red.
Look straight ahead; be your own master.

Life's a struggle but no need to be flustered.
If one cannot find a leader, one can always lead.
So gather all the strength that you can muster;
look straight ahead; be your own master.

What is a Villanelle?

A villanelle (also known as villanesque) is a nineteen-line poetic form consisting of five tercets followed by a quatrain. There are two refrains and two repeating rhymes, with the first and third line of the first tercet repeated alternately until the last stanza, which includes both repeated lines. The villanelle is an example of a fixed verse form. The word derives from Latin, then Italian, and is related to the initial subject of the form being the pastoral.
