The Ballerina

The glossy pink ribbon shone from the stage light. 
My feet ache from the pain i am to face everyday,
 I feel as if to slowly collapse under the fatigue of my weak frame.
 I must keep pushing if i am to be perfect. 
My spirit is heavy and I am trying to carry my feet,
 if I make a mistake everyone will see. 
The music is getting louder and my heart is pounding.
 My legs feel torn, the pain i can't bear. 
My heart is so heavy i can barley carry it across the stage. 
On with the show.

Jenna Lantz
