Evil is fierce, always lying in lurk, 
Fighting Man's opportunity to sow, 
Infinite value, a souls greatest perk,
All of us need Love and freedom to grow.

The economy and democracy,
A tease in a tie or king with a crown,
The Goddess of truth as authority,
Love expands your mind, fear will shut it down.

Artificial walls, which cannot be seen,
Erected by the beast of many names, 
Keep your mind clear and let your heart stay keen,
Spirit will fly unrestricted by frames.

The Earth is our home and balance the key,
A sovereign man will truly be free.

good one. If it were Italian sonnet, you could put it into that miltonic contest that requires a moral or social theme. Congrats for your win.

Hello SKAT. Thank you very much for a warm welcome! I am actually not used to writing poetry and submitted this one, which is meant for a school assignment, simply to see the reactions before turning it in. That being said, I love "playing" with language and writing this sonnet was an enjoyable experience. Poetry Soup seems like a Great forum for poets and really inspires in one a desire to read and write more poetry - I am looking forward to check out your writing and hopefully post some more myself. Thank you for your friendly words and for making Poetry Soup such a positive forum. Very happy to meet you :)
