A Sonnet
 
Earth-bound; we envied the birds in the sky
 
And wished we can swim swift like a dolphin
 
Even if doors be shut, we could walk in;
 
Or go back in time, perhaps never die!
 
Children we were once; we wanted to fly
 
Be superheroes, have powers within
 
Races, contests, all battles we shall win
 
Live forever, laugh always, never cry!
 
Then we grow up, recognize our folly
 
Mundane all our lives; we soon discover
 
Yes, some of us sink to melancholy
 
But we bounce back; life is never over
 
Heroes we’re not, but if we are Godly
 
Earth-bound we aren’t; we’ll live forever!

Indeed reborn we are, dust to dust cycle. Amazing similar thoughts with Jenifer's "YOU" poem I just read a moment ago. Like. Thanks Brod.

Thanks for liking Brod. I am on a sonnet binge. Last three poems I posted have been sonnets - I have written more but have not posted. I feel that self-expression given the constraints of iambic pentameter and its unique rhyming pattern is an exhilarating high.
