This page is where I will be putting poems and stories. Most of which are written by me. If they are by someone else I will give credit, if no credit is given then they are by me.
Here are some poems. "Dancers" I am a dancer I twirl, leap and spin I jump, piorette, and tap I am a dancer I feel pain and fear I feel defeat and failure Yet I keep going I smile, I practice, I perform I feel happiness and joy I have grace and beauty I hear the applause I perform and do my best Sometimes I fail I don't give up For I am a dancer I am brave and strong I dance not for fame and glory but for how I feel inside I am happiness,joy,love & excitment strife, talent, joy, determination and beauty I am a dancer "The Performance" The spotlight brightens The music begins I'm up on my toes as I twirl and spin I jump and I leap From one side to another feeling just the music never any other. I raise up in pointe then down in plie performing what i've practiced for so long every day. To dance is my dream, I can't let it die for when I do dance I feel I can fly The world can disapear My troubles can cease For just one moment I am truly at peace. "Ode to Ballet By- Faith Dragza The beauty of ballet cannot be surpassed no matter how hard one tries for its the dream of all who love it to dance until one dies ballet will fill the yearning of those who long to dance but those who care not about it will not give it a glance When a longing heart is happy some say it is from ballet and we know that they are right as we dance from day to day Happiness comes from dancing from God and nothing more everything worth doing will someday open up loves door and when you are finally happy your heart will fill with joy and you'll dance all night with wonder at this wonderful employ Listen to the waves crashing upon the sea oh, look at them dance they're nearly as happy as me For i have found the desire of my hopeful little heart and if I cannot dance it will be torn apart so when you see me dancing up upon the stage think of the dancing of I and the waves for we are both so happy to finally get to dance that we will ever remember the day sadness will throw his lance and the happiness will be pierced through the heart as the dancing will be no more as the heart once poured out sadness now that will happen nevermore now one must dance on forever never dancing a last dance for it is impossible to be happy without ballet after sadness has thrown his lance. "To My Grandpa" Not so very long ago you were by my side, lovingly watching over me ready to help and guide. Taking pride in all the good times and sharing in all the bad. You taught me that I could succeed, and helped me find the confidence I had. It didn't matter if I failed, I was perfect in your eyes Nothing I ever did was wrong as long as I just tried. Then suddenly you were gone, with barely a chance to say goodbye there wasn't time to tell you all that was in my heart. But, maybe this little poem can hopefully be a start. I loved you every moment of every waking day. Even when I screamed at you and wished you'd go away. The love you gave your family, will never be forgot. Now that you're gone There's so much I wish for you to see, like the day I walk down the aisle to become somebodies bride. The way I hope to raise my children with the values, you taught me. But most of all I wish that you could see the women I will be. Time will go on as I leave the past behind. Knowing that although you are not here, you'll forever be my guide.
