GYANNA KISHA GEONZON

Sacred Heart School, Cebu City

 

BROKEN MASTERPIECE

Her hand flies to her mouth to silence the screaming

Of a soul whose heartstrings have been cut by life's thorns;

Of starlight that once shined but now has lost meaning;

Of an identity she once knew, but now mourns.

 

She places herself inside a jar filled with tears

Her cries for saving, mirrored by her reflection

Who echoes the same words, lies, the same unseen fears-

A duplicate of herself — an imperfection.

 

Confusion is the weed that continues to grow

On the hearts of soul-seekers who wish to be free

From waves that push and pull, from illusions that flow

Into the dreams of sailors who are lost at sea

 

But when she shuts her eyes, these dreams turn into hope

That lights the night inside her jar — her way back home.

Winds paint the sky orange, she untangles the ropes

Once more she shall try, once more she shall rise and roam.

 

The glass shatters at the touch of her fingertips,

Power seeping to her skin with each step she takes.

The taste of possibilities grazes her lips,

The sweetness of spring - she puts everything at stake.

 

She had lost parts of herself - parts that made her sane

To the fragility of her porcelain soul.

But as the clouds part to reveal a brand new reign,

Her lungs breathe in flowers - one again, she is whole.

 

Her arms open wide to embrace the acceptance

Of a soul who breaks and mends its very own heart.

She is a protostar, she shall reach transcendence.

She is broken beauty - a piece of living art.

 

She has traveled oceans to conquer lonely nights

With constellations that paint a smile on her face.

From an abyss to a field of blinding starlight,

"To new beginnings," she speaks to the ends of space.
