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, [5]
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 my self almost despising,
Haply I think on thee, and then my state, [10]
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

From the first 8 lines to the last 6 lines, in terms of tone.. do you think the author goes from loss to fulfillment , despair to contentment, or anger to acceptance?

I know that he feels upset with himself in the beginning and suddenly he is happy by the end of the poem that he has his love. So i am thinking the second one?
