My Name Is Dancer - Poem by Miss Aurora

My name is dancer, no prostitute or whore.

My worth, my value, my self esteem,
expressed in movement to a musical theme.

I dance for money to earn my way.

I dance for pleasure, I dance for pay.

But that doesn't mean I'm naughty or bad.

If you think I am, then for you I feel sad.

I feel love and hate, joy and pain.

I need to eat and be sheltered from the rain.

I'm a person with personal needs,
like love, happiness, and desire to be me.

I hope for the future.

I ache from the past, but on stage I'm a dancer,
first note to last.

Though my work may be considered indiscreet,
please don't put me down,
cause I have dancing feet.
