The Trail Blazer



There's beginning and an end,
Every tale betwixt does twist and bend.
Without a frown, ride along friend.
Stop not, ascend! Stop not, ascend!

You have begun, an end in mind.
Put all your doubts away, behind.
Stay focussed on your goal defined
If stressed, unwind! If stressed, unwind!

Fear no hurdle and fear no bend.
'I can' is the message to send.
To your life, a new edge, do lend.
Start a new trend! Start a new trend!

Write a brand new story, your own. 
Trail blazer, go mark your own zone.
To failure all journeys are prone.
But never groan! But never groan!

See, soon success shall be your loot,
Then you will dance and play the flute.
See how others shall follow suit.
In your pursuit, in your pursuit!


The MonoTetra is a new poetic form developed by Michael Walker. Each stanza contains four lines in monorhyme (the lines have the same end rhyme). Each line is tetrameter (four metrical feet) for a total of eight syllables. The last line contains two metrical feet, repeated. There is no limit to the number of stanzas.
Stanza Structure :
Line 1: 8 syllables; A1
Line 2: 8 syllables; A2
Line 3: 8 syllables; A3
Line 4: 4 syllables, repeated A4, A4


This MonoTetra has been written for One Single Impression prompt-129-beginning

MonoTetra,new form of poetry - very educative and the lines in your poem - very inspiring. You seem to be getting better with your skills at poetry and its various forms.
Hey Vibz..
Yet another great poem from you..

--Someone Is Special--
It's the repetition in the last line of each stanza that gets my attention!

Loved the poem. Personally, though it does make a difference, I never pay much attention to the rhyming meters. So, I must say, this was an interesting read.
