Rings were signs of bonds,

Promises that were meant to be kept,

Dreams that were to be unlocked.


Those stones became a demand on her,

No one knew if she loved solitaires or sapphires,

She was engaged, yet her heart felt trapped in societal rules,

After all scions did not have choices to make,

She was doing only what was expected of her and her position,

Sometimes marriage when business was involved was an important “family decision”.
