Sonnet Reversii

This sonnet form was invented by  Visalakshi , aka  Vive la V on Allpoetry
Here are her own requirements:

(1) Stanzaic : quatorzain, or octave and sestet.
(2) 10 syllables, except in the final couplet, which could vary: 10 or 11, but both L13 and L14 should be the same syllable length
(3) It is lexical where the last word of the first stanza becomes the first/ or beginning of the first word of the second stanza. This pattern continues to the end.
(4) The sonnet ends with the same word with which it begins, yes it is a requirement.
(5) Must rhyme. Rhyme pattern abab cdcd efef g’g (or gg) (near rhymes or exact rhymes)
(6) Volta in L9 or L 13

(7) For this form there is no metric requirement. It is optional.

Here is my example

We have What's Needed     (Sonnet Reversii)

Within us all is something from without. 
Without a doubt there's much I can adduce, 
adduce some things for you to think about. 
About our doubts we have a real excuse. 
Excuse me when I claim man's not correct, 
correct in thinking gods must be required. 
Requiring dogma leaves a disconnect- 
a substitute for answers much desired. 

Desiring knowledge is, and must remain -
remain a trait to which we must attend. 
Attend to learning; try not to complain. 
Complaining sigh won't help us to contend- 
contend with knowing, "How'd it all begin". 
Begin assured, we've all we need within.
