A Sonnet?

A sonnet is truly too hard to write
since there are so many styles and types.
Make it with ten syllable or without?
Octave, sestet, rhyme or not, I don’t know
Be it inspiration by the gods or
the great men: Shakespeare, Petrarch and Spencer,
I will turn this struggle over and out
until I have formed some virtuous art
It is then I’ll have achieved a great task:
writing a sonnet to pass into class
made with fourteen lines and ten syllables.
I tried to make an octave-did it work?
confusion, stress this sonnet has supplied
It’s possible this is why Shakespeare died!
