Newfound Insecurity

Uncertain times open new doors
Revealing hope in the distance
Will anything come in all this
Questions I ask in each instance

Revealing hope in the distance
On the horizon not close yet
Will the journey be very long
A question that inspires regret

Will anything come in all this
With time comes a certain doubt
But the hope hasn’t died today
One day surely we will find out

Questions I ask in each instance
Seeing things in new light today
A belief that I must now cling to
Love isn’t a game that we play

This fits the form of the quatrain but is actually a Retourne. Another one of these French forms that I like. Similar to the quatern in that each line is 8 syllables and is composed of four stanzas. After the first stanza the first line of the second stanza is the second line of the first stanza repeated, the first line of the third stanza is the third line of the first stanza, repeated, and finally the first line of the fourth stanza is the fourth line of the first stanza. There is no restriction on rhyme, but that's no fun, that's technically why I can call this a quatrain. So the form would be


S2L1 is S1L2 repeated

S3L1 is S1L3 repeated

S4L1 is S1L4 repeated

No rhyme scheme required, just remember all lines are eight syllables
