She Conquered her Fear

She conquered her fear to do what’s right

though she knew the beasts would fight

she took the stand and told the truth

she’d kept long buried from her youth

and many a woman relived her plight

She shared her shame, we felt her fright

his hand against her mouth held tight

to mute her screams of his abuse

She conquered her fear

Some memories vivid from that night

but not the date, her ride, the site

but oh the laughter, loud, uncouth

still echoes and taunts her tattered youth

            She conquered her fear


Prompt: Conquered  Form: Rondeau  (two liberties taken)
