Music, lights, warmed up toes
make-up on and ready to show.
Passion, anxiety, the thrill of go
pointe shoes tied and preparing to throw.
Caution to the winds,
Heart to the world,
Fear out the door.
Life, jobs, growing up
all made easier when it's something you love.
Dreams, practice, mind aglow
remembering is nothing when you know.
What you do,
How it goes,
Ready, steady, flow.
Teach, perform, all I need
to be myself and set me free.
Success, pleasure, contentment to see
a career completely right for me.
Dancing by night,
Teaching by day,
All a breath away.
If, only, all the world could view
how much ballet means to get me through.
Study, dance, is all I can be
hoping against hope to do what I do.
Kinesiology to teach,
Ballet to dance,
Failure is not an option.
Need, want, however you say it
auditions around the corner.
Execute, engage, what I need to explore
taking tests and making impressions.
Lead to a job I thirst for.
