sonnet 29 plus, im a useless junky and having quit will always continue to be

by rayonhousefly

When, in disgrace with fortune and men’s eyes,

I all alone beweep my outcast state,

And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries,

And look upon myself and curse my fate,

Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,

Featured like him, like him with friends possessed,

Desiring this man’s art and that man’s scope,

With what I most enjoy contented least;

Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,

Haply I think on thee, and then my state,

(Like to the lark at break of day arising

From sullen earth) sings hymns at heaven’s gate;

For thy sweet love remembered such wealth brings

That then I scorn to change my state with kings

I’m not that familiar with Shakespear’s Sonnets, so I went and looked this one up. I needed to read a little about what it meant and also I read a couple paraphrases of it. It is beautiful. I see now why you chose it.
