I was born one day as queen of my night,
Where I was drowned of all visible light.
How long did I have to stay my own knight
Before the sun shined and the moon glowed bright?

On three legs I took a long stroll among
A frigid nowhere--the place I belonged,
A flat land to sing this frivolous song
Of five score years I had lasted in long.

It's been forever; I finally see
A plateau of light, what had made me plea.
I put the century inside of me;
It is time I let myself stagger free.

I took a step and was gone to the world.
Sending adieus to life, my wings unfurled.

This was originally written for a contest, but instead of being entered, it was changed over and over again until this copy, written differently than most sonnets.

My heart is blind, that so it can love the soul that is too bright for the eyes to see.
