Humming Grief

Reading Time: 1 minute

An intense poem that transcends from the pain of grief to a sense of grief, by Elsy, in Different Truths.

She hummed with pride

a stately grief

hemmed into her heart

for a long, long time.


Her pride she kept,

broke not down

knelt not down

bent not down.


Passing three score doorsill,

she took the five elements

and moulded her grief

into an alluring damsel.


She gave her wings,

gave her songs,

and let her soar

above the skylines!
