Sonnet VII. Nocturnal Misadventures

Updated on July 14, 2017

World's lone sonnet grandmaster. Shakespeare's Sonnet 1 describes him as “the world’s fresh ornament and only herald to the gaudy spring."

It's a recurring nightmare that I have:
requirements uncompleted in a school
or failing grades or missed graduation day.
It's not the kind of dreams that I can love.

There's one time when I didn't seem a fool.
It happened in a venue far away.
Though not part of the class, I was above:
behind the room with Masters -- really cool.

But all the rest were sad scenes all the way.
They added to the sense of gloom than salve
the sad life of a baffled cosmic tool.
These nighttime woes intensified dismay.

If I'd fail to ascend, It's just as well.
I'm still a young soul, this much I can tell.
