Her Series: Steps.

There is power in the steps she takes, they are stronger than the fear that trained her, stronger than the hands that slapped and snapped her skin. The muscle and bone they can tame, yet she still wanders– running down mountainsides, swimming the great lakes, letting the sun warm her oiled fur. She will live more in a single second, with each step she takes and with each brave hope, then they could ever dream.  Though her pain is exposed, for every prying eye that looks down…upon her tamed frame, and they think the fight is over, that the bells been rung and the gates are closed–but she still wanders.
