Ballerina

This is the start,
the spotlight hour,
let the questions be asked.
From the first until the last
let’s let answers
trigger the complicated feelings.
Want versus the need
she is here to dance
to fill our lives.
There is a depth in words
that make perfect sense
only she understands.
There are certain meanings
from underneath this light
the girl has perfect balance.
Tiptoeing or otherwise,
she has near perfect form
it’s hard to turn away from her.
Still, the future is female,
time is running quiet
she’s calm and ready
the crowd grows silent.
From the center outward
the curtains separate
lights outline her figure,
just as the music starts
the ballerina steps forward
to begin her dance.
