The rhythm of my body
I dance when my eyes blink
I dance to touch your soul with an indelible ink
I dance when my heart sings
I dance to give a caged bird its wings
I dance when my soul sobs
I dance to the happiness of the harvested crops
I dance when my spine shivers
I dance to soothe your nerve tremors
I dance when I rise high to the sky
I dance to add glister to your gloomy eye
I dance when I sink to the bottom of the earth
I dance to celebrate the revival of hope on its rebirth.
I dance when my head droops in the darkness of enigma
I dance to the rhythm of the words that give a third degree to dogma.
I dance when my hands tremble in the frozen forest of fear
I dance to provide warmth to the icy days of the calendar year
I dance when my hair strands race through the waves of the air
I dance to the giggles of the roller coaster at the children's fair.
I dance when my fate gets flipped
I dance to outspread the wings of love that were violently clipped.
I dance when your fingers tickle the veins of a flute
I dance to digest the harsh reality of a bitter truth.
I dance when a mother experiences the baby bumps
I dance to wipe the tears of abandoned moms.
I dance when success embraces my best friend
I dance to drive the dunes of disaster away to their far end.
I dance when it rains
I dance to turn the barren land into a green belt of grains.
I dance to my wishes
I dance to my fears
I dance to my smiles
I dance to my tears
I dance to my blood flow
I dance to my inner glow
I dance when I am low
I dance when I lose my show
Dance is in Me
Dance speaks about Me
Dance completes Me.
