The Dance

Taking every step as carefully as I can

But I  stumble and fall

I’m dancing the dance of life

When I fall it sounds  like a pan being banged against a pan

I get up again and try to stand tall

But I have no confidence and no strife

But I fall down clumsily

I get up kind of hastily

I may not dance wonderously

But I get up again, this time with confidence

I’m no broken picket fence

I’m dancing the dance of life

And this time I have strife

Favorite Quote:
"Let the disappointments pass
Let the laughter fill your glass
Let your illusions last until they shatter.
Whatever you might hope to find
Among the thoughts that crowd your mind
There won't be many that ever really matter.
But take good care of your mother
And remember to be kind
When the pain of another will serve you to remind."
--Jackson Browne
