Sonnet: The World Was Too Much For Me!

Her beauty captured my mind and my heart!
She was innocent, right from the start;
I was so young and I was handsome too!
I wondered whether she tried to me woo!

Yet, somehow, some escape the pangs of sex;
I knew the world was bad to young women;
This injustice was something that did vex;
It seemed to be a world of evil men!

But when mature turned my mind at long last;
I knew the world had both sexes, good/bad;
How helplessly, I ‘d stood in my years past!
The thought curdles my blood and makes me mad!

Yet, God had stood beside me all the time!
My life was destined to become sublime.
