All English Sonnets
BUILD MY CASTLES IN THE AIR
Once I tried to walk my dreams
And put my mind to only flesh and bone.
And overt physicality’s of schemes,
But after a few steps, I fell down.
All my muscles, sinews, nerves and will
Were powerless to put me on my feet,
I tried and tried and tried and tried but still
I found myself squarely on my seat.
All my efforts, having all my sweat
Which I had pre-invested were futile
But I had learnt that frustration and fret
Are never helpful even for a while,
Hence I started dreaming then and there
And bent to build my castles in the air.
