These games

I think we're all just crazy
stuck playing these tough games
Alive with fear and hatred
and living off of pain

We run and run in ciricles
no one breaking out
we haven't moved a meter
our hearts are fraught with doubt

We run until we're broken
and know we can't survive
our weakend hearts still beating
are keeping us alive

its good but its not a sonnet a sonnet is 14 lines and to make it a sonnet u add a stanza of 2 lines to ur other 3 stanzas of 4 lines. Thats the english sonnet. There is also the italian sonnet and I do believe it is a sonnet divided into 2 lines per stanza. I can't remember then a regular sonnet is 14 lines :) I rly like where u are going with this poem
