"To be one's self, is to be truly honest, truly loyal, and truly great."

To stumble, To fall,
To whirl and twirl.
To smirk, and laugh.
To lurk in the darkness...
To fake, and break;
To stand up tall, yet feel so small; to be calm, and feel her lips of balm.
To tip, and tap, on a heart of black; is this so called dance, of loss and trance,
It's long and cold,
strong and bold.
From happy to grim,
To break limb by limb,
Is this so called dance -- the dance of life.

The author's comments:
This has to do with my path of life, through it all I've stumbled and I have fallen. But I continue to be bold and strong. I break down here and there but this dance of life keeps me moving foward.
