Sonnet: Elegy in Blank Verse

SONNET : ELEGY IN BLANK VERSE I wish I could find death before I grow so I could miss life's pain and agony. A child can only feel and hear and see the universe with love and happiness. A child does not fathom those cancered ills that fog a twisted mass of foundered souls nor understand the horrid self one needs to govern and succeed in society. Nor does it care; it only wants and needs an unencumbered path to happiness, a guiltless trail to heavenly frolic; a road that's lost when grown ones rule the world. I wish I could find death before I grow so I could miss life's pain and agony.
