A Ballerina's Dance
Her feet float above the stage
as if carried by some unseen force.
From my view among the generally admitted
I can hardly make out the details of her face.
But those graceful movements are so alluring
each subtle step, precise, and all consuming.
She is the most vulnerable of all artists,
performing a dance that demands every emotion soak through her skin.
Each fluid movement pulls from the reservoir of her experience.
Trained from a young age to move agilely across the stage,
bearing the weight of the world upon her shoulders;
My Ballerina has more ...
Tragedy surrounds us in this life.
The seeds of Hatred, Cruelty, and Oppression,
easily grow to rival the heights of Redwood forests.
It's so easy to find yourself lost in this cold dark world.
But I promise you together we can breach the canopy,
and from our perch we will see the sunlight!
As it reveals bliss too is boundless,
If you're willing to make the climb.
