Writing is all about letting go and taking chances. I wrote this poem when I was about twelve years old. It’s about living your life without fear and having the courage to follow your passion; in other words, learning to dance. It still holds true for me today.
Upon a wire I dance; a thin thread of true romance.
The world lies far beneath me and without a net I prance.
Is there fear in your heart? The thought that I could fall?
Are you watching the risk I take, waiting for my call?
Is it foolish for me to think that you care at all?
Hear my laughter, see my smile; I am not afraid.
Take my hand and join me; do you want our love to fade?
Dance upon the wire with me for the devil has been paid.
Take my hand and hold on tight, there is no need for fright.
The world lies far beneath us, our destiny in sight.
