As Told in Three Sonnets
GUEST POST from Robyn Bolton
Oh innovation, a journey just begun
A bold quest filled with challenges, risks, and dreams,
A path of creativity, knowledge and fun,
That will bring change, growth and a brighter scene.
Do not be afraid, though unknowns abound,
For greatness starts with small unsteady steps
Take courage and embrace each change that’s found,
And trust that success will be the final event.
Remember, every challenge is a chance,
To learn, grow, and shape thy future bright,
And every obstacle a valuable dance,
That helps thee forge a path that’s just and right.
So go forth, my friend, and boldly strive,
To make innovation flourish and thrive.
The Abyss (Death and Rebirth)
Fight on corporate innovator, who art so bold
And brave despite the trials that thou hast,
Thou hast persevered through promises cold,
And fought through budget cuts that came so fast.
Thou hast not faltered, nor did thou despair,
Despite the lack of resources at thy door,
Thou hast with passion, worked beyond repair,
And shown a steel spine that’s hard to ignore.
Thou art a shining example to us all,
A beacon of hope in times that are so bleak,
Thou art a hero, standing tall and strong,
And leading us to victories that we seek.
So let us celebrate thy unwavering faith,
And honor thee, innovator of great grace.
My dear intrapreneur, well done,
The launch of thy innovation is a feat,
A result of years of hard work, and fun,
That sets a shining example for all to meet.
Thou hast persevered through many a trial,
With unwavering determination and drive,
And now, thy hard work doth make thee smile,
As thy business doth grow and thrive.
This triumph is a testament to thee,
Of thy creativity, passion, and might,
And serves as a reminder of what can be,
When we pour our hearts into what is right.
So let us raise a glass and celebrate,
Thy success, and the joy innovation hath created!
