kicking my bum.

Dance is kicking my bum. but i know and understand that i am not the best. and maybe i will never obtain greatness to the worlds standards. but i can obtain greatness for me. i can be great just for me. i am here to learn. i am here to grow. i am not here to show off. or to trump someone else. so though dance is kicking my bum... i think i need it kicked. because that means i am learning something. which is what i'm spending all my money on. so thank you dance... and education. for kicking my bum and keeping me in line. i look forward to it... for the rest of my life.

flying away.

southern bird.

your wings have spread, and you are flying away.

away not alone but away together.

your life is new, as you are flying away.

no longer just a daughter, but also a wife.

things will be different, now that you're flying away.
but different good, change embraced.

you are still wonderful, though you are flying away.
and we still love you.

Your four little birds.
