Dance Spirit

Source

                  I Move with the Tune

                                           of Inspiration

                             A Sound Innately

                                                   Built in My Soul

                           My Body

                            The Instrument

                                                          Movements Infinite

This Body's Vocabulary

                                 Articulating the World

       Transmitting from Experience

                                                     The Spirit Calling

                                                                                             Me

                                      To Move

                                                              Move

                                                                                         Move

              Dancing the Sounds

                          of Hip-Hop, Ballet, Modern, Jazz

               The Ancients

                                           with the Fusion

                of Movements taken Elsewhere

Articulating from

                         Every Step

                      used to Flow through this

                                                                 Life

              Smooth or Rough

                                    Soft or Hard

                                                  Fast or Slow

                                                             Flowing or Stiff

I Speak All the Languages

              Hoping to Contact

                 And Flow with the Other Spirits

                       Mutually or Aggressively

                              Together or Apart

                     No matter how

                                                 This is My Art

                                      GOD-Given Dancer Spirit

                                  Driven from the Passionate Heart
