in the mirror I see my reflection
but in my eyes there's never perfection

I'm turning and twisting spinning around
then I stop and leap from the ground

I strive harder then I can embrace in my mind
seems like I'm doing right but failure is what I find

when I'm dancing it's like no ones in sight
I lose all my thoughts and everything's alright

the one thing I'll never do is stop trying
if I wasn't dancing it feels like I'm dying

in the morning I put on my shoe
I stop and dance and plie like I'm supposed too

I do all I can to be the best I can
judging my judgment and being who I am

Thank you so much Toni for this wonderful poem. This really embodies everything about a dancer and snaps me into my studio. I needed a poem of my choice for one of my school courses that we present and recite to the class. I used this because I felt the passion. Thanks again! :)
