I dance
Amidst the ashes
On top of the grave
Of what was
Of what I hoped
For me
For you

At peace with my conscience my soul
Knowing I have done
Everything in my power
Releasing all the rest
Surrendering to what Is
And what is possible

For me
If not for you

Risk Willingness
Free will
The ultimate gift
The ultimate responsibility

There is no limit

What then
What then
Possibility opportunity
Yes No
In your hands my hands
It comes down
To a decision
A choice

And I choose
To dance
