Dancing Free

Dancing Free

written by: Sheri M. Stewart


I’m moving on and dancing free
breaking away from this you and me

I’m sorry if I made you stumble
but your cadence caused me to tumble

I couldn’t pretend that we were fine
I was your thorn and you were mine

Pretending unity as we shuffled along
our steps never finding a pleasant song

I watched others dance with graceful flair
and my heart longed to join them there

This was not how a dance should be
so I’ve set us loose and I’m dancing free

I know you’ll understand with time
that your feet just don’t belong with mine

So pick yourself up and carry on
Don’t fret about what’s already gone

This lurch will be but a memory
I’m moving on and dancing free

I am interested in and fascinated by so many things in the world around me. I am a dreamer and a lover. I endure great pain and sadness. I am bi-polar. I have learned to embrace the many facets of who I am. I chose to view my illness as just another part of what makes me unique. I write as a form of self-expression and art. I share in the hopes that others can identify with my writing and know they are not alone.
