Syallable Pattern
3, 4, 3, 4, 3, 4, 7

Here is an example of mine.

Seek the Light

Morning sun
shines for us all
yet why do
someplace their faith
in moonlight
as if black skies
could save us from the darkness.

Poets you should have fun with this one! Remember to make sure your syllable count per line is correct so you can avoid your poem getting disqualified. Also remember not to rhyme.
