New Life

She danced.
On her father’s feet
She danced.
Carefree and gracefully
She danced.

She feared.
Her father’s rage
She feared.
The whiskey on his breath
She feared.

She cried.
Her father’s in jail
She cried.
No more dancing
She cried.

He lied.
Promised to quit
He lied.
Broke her heart
He lied.

She left.
Ran from him
She left.
Wanted freedom
She left.

He missed.
His little girl
He missed.
Her growing up
He missed.

She forgave.
Little by little
She forgave.
Wanted him back
She forgave.

New life.
Starting over
New life.
Not the same
New life.
