Favorite Quote:
a man forges his own path


There comes the time of dissuading darkness.
there comes the time of luckless labor.
Follow subdued solace and bouts of bitterness
from clouts of tasteless tactless tongues
and the biased means of cruel creeds.
That you discover the lightness of lesser longings
and give in to self-pity's petty proclamations
as you settle for the lesser, then the least.
For the darkness may peak and go on and on
but know that it is the darkest before dawn.
If ever shall you wander and lose your way
your kins behind will affectionately allay.
The choice to endeavor must be your own whim,
for however much dire, never give in.


The author's comments:
half the lines are not rhyming couplets, but still.

"Failure is, in a sense, the highway to success, in as much as every discovery of what is false leads us to seek earnestly after what is true, and very fresh experience points out some form of error which we shall afterward carefully avoid"John Keats

No matter the structure and couplets, you have pesented a wonderfully deep sonnet :)
