Hitting the Glass Ceiling

Soaring up into the sky

Reaching towards the top

Seeing blue above

Wanting to reach

The stars

.

Going up

And then stopping

Held still

Held back

By a glass ceiling

.

The glory days

Of young wings

And realistic

Ambitions

Are over.

.

Reaching that sky

Is impossible in this form

To shatter the glass

Is impossible

.

But I want to

I want to be above

With the stars…

 .

Sweet melancholy

Does not rise above the heart

And hope is lost

From that direction

The road goes

Spiraling down

On a descending

Glass ceiling
