Fragile Paths

imageDay 25 of NaPoWriMo, the prompt today was to write a ballad. So I’ve gave it my best go.

She chose to walk a different path
Her journey was untold
She fought against her parents wrath
She stepped out first foot bold

Many felt her choices were wrong
Determination knew
She could survive, she was very strong
To see this journey through

She danced within a crowded room
But felt so all alone
Men who sought her didn’t want her
But money was her goal

She would earn her way to college
Rise above naysay words
Her big break would be her knowledge
She rises with the birds

So she made a difficult choice
She lived with years of pain
But she knew one day she’d rejoice
Her hearts desire she’d gain
