You're One of a Kind [[Villanelle]]

by Stephen   Feb 24, 2013

Let this linger in your mind
As you walk about today
Remember, you're one of a kind.

Live your life blind,
as hate causes decay.
Let this linger in your mind.

Life's misfortunes grind
spirits down causing dismay.
Remember, you're one of a kind.

Seek peace and you shall find
that everything will be okay.
Let this linger in your mind.

Sadly, there's no rewind,
share your love and care today.
Remember, you're one of a kind.

I believe we're all defined
by the things we do and say.
Let this linger in your mind.
Remember, you're one of a kind

    First I congratulate you in nailing this form of poetry without it seeming forced. You took it and created this refreshing, amazing piece of work.
    The message you delivered here is lovely, showing someone that they are unique in their own way, showing them that they can shine by being simply who they are. No matter what life brings, or what obstacles may hinder your way you should always remember that you are one of a kind.

    I enjoyed reading this piece the first time I read it, it's uplifting and I also agree hatred is better to not feel it.

    I am writing strange today.

    But you did a good job with this piece, for a moment I thought you were having a hard time lol, you know what I mean but I was glad I was wrong. 5/5
