    Besides every poet’s financial situation, the TRAGEDY is a literary style wherein everything goes wrong, preferably because the protagonist has some tragic flaw, such as pride or lust, that brings doom onto him and everyone around him (or her). Writing a tragedy is always a great way to cheer up.

    There is neither a set rhyme scheme, nor a syllabic/stanzaic limit for the tragedy poetic style.

    Example by Anwaar N. Hassan:

    Cry of the Unborn

    Wonder I, of my sin
    Why unborn, why no kin.
    Ask I, oh mother dear
    Love me, not fear.

    Cherish, beg I, not scorn
    Alive am I, unborn
    Live must I, in womb
    Rest longer still, in tomb

    “Mistake...yes”, you sigh
    Ah! Hear you, pain feel I
    Guilty am I? ... forgive
    Punish, yes, but let live

    Condemn, must you… why?
    No sweet song, no lullaby?
    Unwanted am I?…shun
    Make haste then…be done

    Sleep I, now, eternally
    Wake will I, eventually?
    Unknown, unheard…entombed in stone
    I cry silent…I cry alone.
