"Lost"

A rebellious young man once lost his way
He indulges in pleasures and vices
But was struck awake by reality one day

"Friends" that are cheeky and gay
He was young and easily entices
A rebellious young man once lost his way

Drugs and money he gets to play
With them he was truly fearless
But was struck awake by reality one day

Having none that could make him stay
As an unwary youth, he was simply restless
A rebellious young man once lost his way

Listening to what his so called "friends" say
He thought that vices will make him peerless
But was struck awake by reality one day

One day all of his vices made him pay
He was suddenly abandoned and friendless
A rebellious young man once lost his way
But was struck awake by reality one day

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.

Villanelles are hard to write. You handled this well. And it has some awesome lines, like this one:

One day all of his vices made him pay
