Get Rid Of The Advertisements

A Play Within A Play, Within a Sonnet
 



IF to do were as easy as to know,
Itmay be justified to seek approval.
Be as it may, approval tends to grow;
A small mistake can swiftly cause removal.
Sin results from weakness in our nature,
To embrace sinning, I would lose respect.
Covet (and I do) high nomenclature;
Honour is not mine if I'm suspect.
I never may obtain your top opinion!
Am I unfit to seek my Saviour's throne,
The place of worship where He holds dominion?
Most awesomely, He knows me as His own!
Offending, though, was never my intention,
Soul siblings we, since Jesus' ascension.


Both quotes are from William Shakespeare.

Line 1: Merchant of Venice...
Portia speaking


Down the left side:
Henry V, Act IV, Scene III,
King Henry speaking


The two quotes have been wrought into a Shakespearean sonnet.
