Hey ya’ll, so for English we had to write a sonnet after reading Shakespeare’s, Merchant of Venice, so I decided to post it here!

Keep in mind, this is my first time doing anything like this, and it’s not the best. But I kinda like it so…. and by the way it’s in ABAB CDCD EFEF GG format.

The problem wasn’t me or mom or dad                                                                       None of us could have predicted your plans                                                               The problem wasn’t the nightmares I’d had                                                             It was just you and the gun in your hand                                                                     The gun shot and I wished I had a shield                                                                     Dad fell to the floor at my unmoving feet                                                                   I close my eyes and pretend that he’s healed                                                           That his heart hadn’t stopped and had a beat                                                           But then she screamed and mom had fallen too                                                     I bit my lip and tried to hide my cries                                                                         Suddenly it was only me and you                                                                                   I swallowed my fear and opened my eyes                                                                   How could a stranger say my life was done?                                                             Easy, he pulls the trigger of the gun.

Yeah.. hope you (somewhat) liked it….

Love ya’ll
