What I Want (standard:poetry, 101 words)

About my search for an artistic outlet

Dancing has become an outlet, 

What satisfaction I derive, 

Where other loves cannot fulfill, 

To dance still makes me feel alive. 

But pen on paper, is it not 

Quite like a dancer on a stage? 

I, too, must write to be alive, 

To see the words flow on the page. 

And yet, to write is not enough, 

To be that actress in my plays, 

Is what I secretly desire, 

A different person, every day. 

Alas, to act, a foolish dream, 

For music often calls my name, 

Since I could talk, I've loved to sing. 

And will I achieve my fame?
