We fall down. We get up. We try to hold our head up when life pulls us apart. We fight and we bleed but all we ever need is something to hope for.


If dance is to love, then I love to dance

The precise technique, the feeling of joy

The feeling I get, the needing to prance

So there is never the want to annoy

There are so many types, so many ways

There are lots of options, they never end

Be emotional, dance with every phrase

Balance a turn and always extend

Listen to the music and let it flow

Work for limits and try to push yourself

Be brave and passionate and let it show

Do not dance for others, dance for oneself

Dance is an art, it is self expression

Though impossible, strive for perfection

I love to dance and I love Shakespeare. I am reading Romeo and Juliet in my English class and it inspired me to write a sonnet about dance.
