I have really been in a sonnet-writing mood. This is my second sonnet. Can't really write any poetry recently to a dang sonnet. I blame Shakspeare. Anyway, feedback is always welcome.

Sonnet 2

I'm sitting, happy with my lot in life,

Relaxing, smiling, and enjoying what

Was given to me. No evil or strife

Is mine; my life from flowing silk was cut.

To me no poverty has been given,

A pride of mine has always been my health,

Yet on my heart a longing has stricken.

For now I crave a soulful kind of wealth.

I could live life without a dollar more.

To live like I do now would be just fine.

But nonetheless, unto God I implore

His blessing and His help for love to find.

Though living like a King no doubt is bliss,

Wealth is for nought without a lover's kiss.
