This one’s dedicated to a dear friend of mine who’s the closest to my heart.


You work,
work hard
countless hours
sleepless nights
hungry stomachs
or rather
forgotten hunger
toiling day and night
just to smash the glass ceiling

Friends forgotten,
the thrill of a meetup
slowly faded
the joy of a message
often ignored
the promises made
disappear into the oblivion
“You gotta stay focused”
just to smash the glass ceiling

Relationships ruined,
the cuddle of a young loved one
the embrace of a sweet mother
the life lesson of a wise uncle
the stern yet affectionate soliloquy
of a proud father,
Everything would be mended and perfect
once you smash the glass ceiling
once you grab the Brass Ring
once you smash the glass ceiling
once you grab the Brass Ring
