I Love To Dance - Poem by Rosie McFadden

Here I come, faults and all
Out to attend the Human Ball
The lust, the guile, the hurts, the pride
All that’s within shows up outside

Against the wall I take my stance
Hesitant to join the social dance
I smile and primp within my space
I imagine rejection upon each face

I not sure what to do against this attack
Purpose driving me forward, fear pulling me back
The doubts scream so loud in the thoughts of my mind
A picture of victory I’m searching to find

I’m using my faith to change my confession
The altar’s the couch for my counseling session
God has not given me this Spirit of fear
I can make a new choice; I don’t have to stay here

I’m off of this wall and I’m taking my place
Mind, will and emotion all enter this race
My gifts have made room that’s mine for the taking
Time can’t wait; I’ll just stop the excuses I’m making

The race is not given to the swift or the strong
But to those who hold fast, and those that last long
My resources all I bring into play
I’m not shrinking back; when I fight it’s to stay
