Soaring Beyond Sorrow

December 4, 2022 - Reading time: 2 minutes
Shame of the night, be still and take flight,
Upon wings of steel so strong and light.
The ringing of bells that sing in fright,
As dawn brings forth a new day's light.

Do not let your spirit come undone,
Pray for courage when the stars have gone.
For soon enough you will stand as one,
Ready to face what can't be outrun.

Rise up and soar so high above,
To seek freedom from guilt like a dove.
Release your chains with no more shove,
For shame can never stay aloft.

You must bravely break from life's cage,
No longer bound by sorrow and rage.
Your soul will soar through this age,
Shame of the night on wings of steel.

No matter how difficult it may be, this sonnet urges the reader to free themselves from feelings of shame and guilt. It inspires one to rely on one's own inner fortitude and strength, paving the way for one to soar free on the strength of one's own steel wings.

The first stanza of this sonnet addresses the shame of the night and asks it to be still so that the protagonist can soar on steely wings. The dawning of a new day is represented by a peal of bells, which serves as a symbol of hope for the reader.

A unified front against shame requires prayers for strength, as suggested in the second verse.

In the third verse, the protagonist urges the reader to "Rise up and soar so high above," to find release from their past mistakes and find true love. To free themselves without resorting to violence, they are reminded that shame cannot persist indefinitely.

The poem concludes with a call to bravely throw off the chains of sadness and anger in verse four. Thanks to this, they'll be able to take comfort in knowing they can soar through this age with confidence and pride.
