Whispered Yearning
Ronsardian Ode

A life shattered into million pieces
And broken shards
Fearful doubt ascends as faith decreases—
Collapsing guard
Over spilled tears she yearns to start anew
Rebuild a life, a future into view
Leave her holdfast
Escape at last
Transcend life’s struggles and breakthrough.
