dance of freedom

crazy emotions dance with glee
a shadow of childhood is glimpsed
I can't play a martyr-
not to you, a complete stranger now
why are you preaching like a seer?

I am alone maybe, not lonely-
why wonder what secret makes me go-
why are you astounded by my laughter?
remember, it is the steel in me
that you never could see.

"I will not be a prisoner of the past
while the future shines like a diamond"

I so resonate with "it is the steel in me that you never could see". And LOVE your closing lines.

Bravo! Stand and Dance. Even the lines have that steel.

It is the unseen steel in us that bears us up.
