I need tips on writing an Elizabethan Sonnet (ABAB CDCD, Iambic Pentameter all that good stuff) for english class

I write to contemplate my use of time
The hours pass with nothing done to show
Remark-able how little I have climbed
The slow progress has always been my foe

Deadlines approach to quickly to notice
As swiftly as

How is it so far?

Although the last line is the pentamic, it's sounds off...


Remember to pick your words...


The rest of the lines start with


-   /
I write to contemplate my use of time
-   /
The hours pass with nothing left to show
-   /
Remark-able how little I have climbed


but the last..


/   -
Proper use of time is my wish to know


Can't call to mind what they call it... but something about how words are said.

I agree, lets start it. NAO.


Back on topic....

maybe intonation? Its been a while since I worried about english class school but a poem should flow with a rythym and pitch kind of like a song but not neccessarily as melodic.
