The Neverending story,
Michael Ende

And he looked at me with such shame

No, with such stupidity

No, with such normality


As if I had said

I was a waiter or a painter

Or a doctor or a clockmaker

Or a student or an athlete

Or a dancer or a loser

Or a lover or a cheater


No, I said I was a writer

I let the world know I was ready

To succumb to my torturous destiny


And the lame soul said: okay …

I wrote this poem when I was angry at a friend of mine who didn’t believe poetry was really “a thing”

I really like the way you used the rhymes but if you want to do a Sonnet poem you should use the right structure.
