A Triolet

Let Go

I ask myself, “Why should I care
what others think of me?”
If they don’t like the clothes I wear,
I ask myself, “Why should I care?"
I’ll sing to no one if I dare;
too insecure are we.
I ask myself, “Why should I care
what others think of me?”




A Triolet Poem. 8 lines with two rhymes. 5 of the 8 lines are repeated lines. First line repeats at the 4th and 7th lines. Second line repeats at the 8th line.
