Moving Ahead

Updated: Apr 5, 2021

The gazelle flees;

the lion's predatory nature

is beyond reproach.

The little girl dissolves-

her father's misogyny

becomes bilious.

Now a woman,

fear has become her purpose.

Yet what if she discovered

the lion and her father were gone-

that death could no longer molest her.

And what if now the only discrepancy between

having treachery or freedom

is her inability to look back,

let go,

and move ahead.
