The Dance of Joy

The Dance of Joy

A Poem by likhnewala

Free Yourself !

Stiff we remain
When there is tension
And we retain
A feeling of oppression
That there is pain
To spirit it dampen
Freedom is curtailed
And so is the fun

That is slumber my friend
Because once we wake 
our mood starts to ascend
and we feel like a flake
Having nothing to suspend
in all that we make
Our joints begin to bend
and joy to our own sake

And then we pick up motion
To dance and dance at will
And get into mind's bastion
Where there is no peril
Our stage is a broaden
For viewers foot the bill
Shake and move till the horizon
And life's no more a drill

Tension brings about a coolness in a relationship. We sleep and the next day all seems brighter. We move on and dance in joy in this new found freedom. A glorious piece with awesome rhyming.
