An attempt at the Shakespearian sonnet


Sonnet

The true nature of life it's said
Is to strive alone for one's success
To achieve without regard or dread
For other folk's dignity or stress
But march alone to a singular tune
Is this the ordained path defined
Nature's law cast in the runes
Or is there a higher law refined
By intellect care and philosophy
In which one's life is patterned by
Good works and singularity
Of love towards all both ally
And foe alike without regard
For your immortal soul's reward
