Villanelle: Ask not why, how, where nor what we've become

Villanelle: Ask not why, how, where nor what we’ve become

Ask not why, how, where nor what we’ve become
   Same fate’s meant for all in this thrice-nailed world
Everybody’s mistakes around they’ll come

No use crying over some lost kingdom
   Unless it’s to prevent mistakes of old
Ask not why, how, where nor what we’ve become

If no one e’er made mistakes at random
   Everybody will be mean, proud and bold
Everybody’s mistakes around they’ll come

Only life on earth will be boring some
   Most will wonder where to live life like old
Ask not why, how, where nor what we’ve become

No life’s straight nor easily overcome
   None can claim the right mistake be re-told
Everybody’s mistakes around they’ll come

Right or wrong the challenge is to become
   That person who knows how to learn from old
Ask not why, how, where nor what we’ve become
Everybody’s mistakes around they’ll come
