Dance of No Permission

By Angela Counts © 2008

Dance
Ask no permission

You are your own joy
Your own bliss

Dance upon the cornerstones on that which has not been built

Dance upon dust
Kick up a storm

And watch them blind their eyes

No matter
A dance is DNA

The blood that knows

It won’t be forgotten

It can’t be stopped

It is the beat that keeps step

The step that is history

When we don’t know

We still know

In that quiet place

The heart racing around

Anxiety, Desire to move ahead

Dance, head held high
Dance, like you never knew how

And this, and now
Two steps, One step back

Moving forward, In circles

Light that corner
With feet of your own imagination

Kick the door out on that which can’t be said

Dance with anger, dance with joy
No matter

It’s your dance

Dance, like you never knew how
And this, and now

Two steps, One step back
Moving forward, In circles

Light that corner
With feet of your own imagination

It’s your dance
