Dancing Through Life: How I Live

To spill the anger burning inside,

To caress the heart crying, 

To impede the endless thinking of mine, 

To prevent myself from dying. 


To cherish the precious memories made, 

To forget what hurt my pride, 

To celebrate all the progress I've made, 

To let my body shine. 


To punch the people who knock me down, 

To let my youth revive, 

To teach myself to be profound, 

I dance to stay alive.
