She rises.

She rises.
She is not kept by limitations.
She does not wait for their permissions.
She does not seek to please or beg or heed.
Away from the attachments and the ropes they sling.
Away from the herd that cries out her name.
Away, and away, and away from the comforts of crowds.
She rises.
Powerfully-soft.
Sharp-tongued.
And ready.
Feet charred from dancing in her flame.
