Then I took the second word as the first column of the next stanza.  I work with recovering addicts                                    and was in entrepreneurial spirit:

You can see that any two consecutive verses make up the fourteen lines of a sonnet.  Not everyone                          appreciates  those who stand out from the crowd, so ‘dilemma’ entered the arena and I continued:

Some people have an aversion to drama; but I am determined to shift perspectives a little, starting with my own:

In reality, I was inputting on Facebook, so had to insert these poems in reverse order.  I was working spontaneously and making them up as I went along.  So maybe I think back to front.
