“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.” – Roy T. Bennet

Why You Dance

call it what you will but it’s a dance

that moves the very center of your soul

and releases all the hurt you ever had

and forgets every promise that you broke

but you can’t help but start to wonder what you’re for

and you feel it so deeply that you cry

and dreaming isn’t what it was before

and you doubt the point of “who” and fear the “why”

call it what you will but it’s a dance

that you been showing off since time began

and only now you’ve started wondering

why you’re here

and why you dance

you’ve been spinning for so long you’re in a hole

it makes it that much harder to escape 

and the dizzier you are the less control

it seems there’s no way out your present state

you used to like the feeling that it gave

but you’ve seen what it means to be complete

and you know the happiness you felt was fake

and you’re tired of the aching in your feet

call it what you will but it’s a dance

that you been showing off since time began

and only now you’ve started wondering

why you’re here

and why you dance
