To a Little Princess
To a Little Princess

by Aubrey a.k.a. Naomi Sisko

* * *

Oh, indestructible spirit!

That which in its agony scorns hunger for the comfort of death,

That which thrives in the company of sorrow,

Lifting its sights to the day of redemption,

Holding steadfast to intangible beauty in the midst of the ashes of lost love.

What spring do you draw from

To be beaten down by innumerable storms

And sail on?
