Born to Dance
When did we stop dancing?
Why do we no longer enter the city to dance through the streets?
When will we remove our suits,
and be seen amongst many.
When will we realize we have it all backwards?
How many mistakes,
will it take to awaken us
to the meaning of it,
the reason why,
because that’s what we want,
A reason to act,
a reason to breathe,
an explanation for all that is bad,
and gratification for all that is good.
When will we realize,
that the little girl called Feyth,
knew what she was doing.
When she started dancing in the streets.
And the other children watched her dance,
dropped their toys,
and danced along.
The parents closed their mouths and found their feet.
stopped and stared.
And inevitably started to move,
started to groove.
stared out the windows,
laid down their papers and erupted into the street.
And Feyth continued to dance.
Not because of their involvement,
because Feyth was doing what she was made to do,
she was created to dance
