My First Ever Sonnet
I start my climb with this one thought, finish
Along the way, I saw fear
Fear said, “To fall is what I see for you”
Then old doubt kicked at me
But I was too focused to be bothered
Then failure said, “get rope burn”
Last but not least, frustration was a beast
He started tugging my rope
But his efforts only had him fall fast
At the tip top I danced
Then I reached out a helping hand quick
To those with a hateful heart
Because I know hurt people hurt people
Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge my offering.
May we never lose our desire to outdo what we’ve already done.
