Her hands were shaking
And she knew immediately 

That some dormant domain

In her mind had been awakened 

It had her full attention 

Becoming the point of focus 

From which all acts evolved

And few words worth the mention

She had been well prepared

That every thought being process

Constructed the chosen route

To what her heart deeply desired

For years all that had mattered

Was how things might appear 

After beating at the glass ceiling 

Until it eventually shattered

Today she was trembling 

Knowing this was the giant leap

Which no experience before

Could come close to transcending 

Suddenly overcome with calmness

Her body began to feel relaxed 

Having finally found the impetus

That drove her to seek solace
