Do You Long to Find Your Own Dance?

by Paul Chubbuck

Do you long to find your own dance?
but only trudge to others’ steps?
Let your feet teach you.
They remember the dirt you rose from.
Let them touch their Mother.
She’ll remind you where your tears are hidden.
Let your hips show you
How the weight of years may be carried lightly.
I’ll tell you a secret your heart needs.
You belong.
