Write your own Story(1st sonnet)

dean langmuir

If you read your story from a stranger

Would you contemplate and would it engage

Does music flow,or try to rearrange

your songbook,poignant notes upon the page


Within this chaptered past,from anothers view

Do you see what you want to recognize

or deny this person is even you

Character percieved behind unlike eyes


Emerging birth,awakened genesis

Developing mounting traits day by day

Read between the lines,find your nemesis

Listen to this menacious foe I say


Then put this book upon your mental shelve

Begin to write a volume two yourself

    I just got a book of Shakespeare's sonnets from the library, I had never read one before. I am beginning to understand the framework and flow and I love what you have written. We truly can be very different people, depending on the point of view.

      Thank you Bella for the reply,a sonnet is quite an exercise to compose and try to covey something,I wasn't sure if even made any sense,you got what I was getting at,take care
