Emma took the blows

Emma took the blows
one to her head
and one to her soul.

It had been her wish
It had been her hope
But perhaps their words were true
and she had been wrong all along

Emma laid there
defeated, wounded and tired.
Tired, of it all.

She had been hit down before,
But never with such strength.
Never so overwhelming.
Never so brutal.

It had been her dream
Her longing
Had she been foolish to follow it?

Here they were,
Saying she should not.
Saying she could not.
…and perhaps they were right.

Yet at that moment
her heart spoke
softly, but strong.

“No,” it whispered,
“Your dream is still yours
And it will remain yours till the end
For in your dream lays your destiny.”

“But I cannot!” Emma cried.
“Why? Because they sat so?” the heart went on
“I say you can and I say you must. Listen,
for I know you best.”

Emma had taken the blows
one to her head
and one to her soul

But none to her heart
Where she treasured her dream
and from there she would continue to dream

Until she had achieved it
Blows or no blows
Her dream was hers
And her heart would lead her to her destiny.
