Empowerment. Engagement. Authenticity.

The Heartbreak Sonnet

The boulder, nine years anchored on that hill

is sliding. Reluctant motion but still,

descent, once begun, defies resistance

for this final unchoreographed dance.

Through sun-drenched days and starlit nights she hummed

serenades, butterfly and bird wing strummed.

Amid dancing flowers and grasses green

she spun petal wishes and dewdrop dreams.

She knows no life beyond that hilltop perch;

Splintered purpose ignites a frantic search

for a self voluntarily ignored

in favour of happiness unexplored.

At the base of a hill, progress looms high,

Intangible as a cloudless, blue sky.
