I am an artist bound only for the poet's glory....But only achieve half of the success that my dreams aspire to find, And to what do the whispers tell me of this failure...To what end to they haunt my nightmares...my eternal dark dreams...

Let me listen to the trees whistling to the wind,
Let me see the sun set in the ill sorrow dusk.
Let me feel the emotions of a mans soul once bent,
Let me feel something besides the rubble and dust.
Let me into your heart ever so enlightening,
Let me hear the angels harp for just one glorious moment.
Let me taste love just once no matter if it ends in sour findings,
Let me feel what I am forced to watch in such horrid torment.
Let me forget the pain of my childhood,
Let me forget the people who mocked.
Let me remember the time when my brother was kind and good,
Let me remember the saints whose faces I seem to have forgot.
Rubble and dust…
Such horrid torment…

This is a sonnet of a man with no certain emotion, but yet he wants to be normal and feel like the rest of society.

Since honesty is the best policy, I think the best way to improve it would be to implement a rhyming scheme, but the overall message is good
