Sonnet of life

In which I write a sonnet to my happy life.

Picture of William Shakespeare

Life in Casa G is a little strange at the moment. The Feliciraptor is away and life all of a sudden seems very different, as though this is what it would be like if she wasn’t around all the time. Added to this I work in the centre of Birmingham so get to think about when I lived there as a bachelor. It is strange to think that my life could have quite easily have been very different.

After having a few painful failures at trying to make changes to my life I finally found the right combination of people and time to make a big difference. In my old life I would have been looking forward to a weekend playing Rock Band 4 by myself, instead I am going with my wife to London and looking forward to my daughter returning from holiday.

That’s a pretty good life to be thinking about.

I will often remember bad old days,
I’ll stop and pause to think what life would be,
It’s all work and boring monotony,
But now that time is gone, it’s just a haze.

My life has changed, for it has worked out well,
The cause, a wife, a life, one child, two child,
No day the same, all different, they’re wild,
Good times, some not, yet there’s not one I’d sell.

For this is life sometimes it’s rough, some smooth,
Then chances come that will alter life’s lot,
In livings game when you don’t play, you lose.

Lottery tickets can’t win when not bought,
So go, full steam and show them what you’ve got,
Our time is short, don’t live a life rethought.

Ah, so you worked out the riddle. You just needed to use dwarfish and the doors to Geek Ergo Sum opened. Or perhaps you just used Google. Either way you are here, on my little corner of the Internet.

  1. I like the way you summed up your life, one thing I couldn’t help writing is, even if you buy lottery tickets , you cannot be sure you’d win. I got a philosophical flavor from your poem, you surely are an awesome poet! πŸ™‚


  2. “Lottery tickets can’t win when not bought,
    So go, full steam and show them what you’ve got,
    Our time is short, don’t live a life rethought.” – that cuts to the truth of things. Thanks for the reminder.
