She Rises

Hunched shoulders
Clenched fists
Slow progress
Against the wind
Road ahead folded
Back on itself,
The journey long
The sky falls black
The storm rages strong
Why expect progress?
Maelstrom holds you
Static, wasted effort, burning legs
Heavy, weighed down
Carrying the burden of all
Stumble in the night
Closed, clenched
Angry, resentful
Sodden, drenched
Eyes to the floor
You can stand no more

Pause, still.
Blink of light
Shining star
Breaks the night
She rises
All change
Heart grows
