Villanelle Poem – Light and Dark

*

The end of tunnel was finally in sight

Travel of a long journey found in no vain

Energized my weary body moved toward the light

~

The road taken was not one I had chosen

Unexpected trail and body half frozen

The end of tunnel was finally in sight

~

Trotting in darkness with heavy feet

Hope, my only strength to pick up the beat

Energized my weary body moved toward the light

~

Long hall of darkness with pain in veins

Comfort in heart stopped me from faint

The end of tunnel was finally in sight

~

Throbbing pain head to toes subsided

Medication and nutrition worked two-sided

Energized my weary body moved toward the light

~

Six months of cancer treatment had completed

Only follow up appointments needed to be repeated

The end of tunnel was finally in sight

Energized my weary body moved toward the light

Hi Sammi, The Villanelle poem is a 19-line poem, sorry for writing more than 15 line.
The highly structured villanelle is a nineteen-line poem with two repeating rhymes and two refrains. The form is made up of five tercets followed by a quatrain. The first and third lines of the opening tercet are repeated alternately in the last lines of the succeeding stanzas; then in the final stanza, the refrain serves as the poem’s two concluding lines.  https://www.poets.org/poetsorg/text/villanelle-poetic-form
