Dance the Dance

Dance the Dance

Why do the people cry out

So loudly, but in vain

The people needing help

For they know not but the pain

The lack of education

Keeping so many good people down

The money needed for books and chalk

Goes naught to teach, but to the town

The tests and scores show where money is

As those that fall and don’t get up

Have never seen need to rise, as sad as this is,

We need the balance in this world

Or we shall not advance

So raise the standards of our schools

So all can dance the dance

For when we keep good people down

We harm ourselves, for all should get their chance

I wish to see all people be anything they can

For what would you think of your life

If you had not had the chance

The chance that is given to you and I

The chance to dance the dance



I look into your eyes

I touch your soul

I find the doors to the walls

Those fortified walls to your heart

I ask nothing of you

I accept what I am given

I am a man

I can see your pain

I want to wash it all away

This brings out your smile

That radiant reflection

Of who you are

This is a confusing world

How to tell you how I feel

I do not know, I am in the dark

Your light is right at the end of my tunnel

Yet it seems so out of reach

I know not what love is

Yet if it is this feeling of helplessness

Of hope for the future

The burning in my chest

The tingling of my fingers

At your touch

You do not know

And maybe that is best

For to let you know

Is to let you in

And that scares me

Scares me beyond belief

No one gets close

No one gets hurt

No hurt, No pain

Just sorrow

These words pound out strong

Like the beating of my heart

And these words are erractic

Also like my heart

My words, My soul

I pour out upon

The pages of time

The tears that flow

Wash my pain

From my face

Buy my insides

Have no tears

To wash them

They burn on

Bright as the sun

This really is not painful

There is so much joy

I am happy

Your smile is my guide

To understand you

That is to be happy

You may never know

I may never tell

But you my lady

Are Special
