To Dance

To Dance

A Poem by bellaa

They stand in the wings.

The stage lights are on.

One points in my direction-

The show has begun.


Should I step from my place in the wings?

Am I worthy of such a light

Its like a sun that rests on me...

Do I deserve that deity?


The music starts,

The violins match the beats of my heart.

Its like the stage is a tightrope,

And I must walk across it. 


The butterflies begin to flutter around

I feel my feet leave the ground,

I’m running on my toes across the stage.

But am I brave enough to dance?


When I look from the stage-

I see the crowd, I see no faces.

Its like a masquerade...

But I don’t wear a mask,

For I am brave enough TO DANCE.

bella life is all about words. at the end of the day, that's what we're made up of. if my life is a story, i'm waiting for the climax. if it's a poem i haven't found the rhyme or meter. if it's a son.. more..
