Down to earth!

August 21, 2008

feet firmly on the ground

tapping to the song
being played out
i sat quietly
sipping a refreshing drink

the lyrics seem to be very known
yet my mind is far away from it
the music is what i hear
the music is what i am listening to!

legs wanting to clamber onto the dance floor
my mind travelling somewhere far away
my soul flying in the darkness inside me
my body stays rooted to the seat

tired of dancing every single week
i sought a respite from this
seeking to end this once and for all
i removed the dancing shoes and threw them away!

now, tapping to the song
playing right now
i think of the time
when i threw everything away for life!

my mind is still travellling somewhere far away
my soul is still flying in the darkness inside me
my body is still rooted to the seat
and my legs continue tapping with the new shoes
that keep me firmly on the ground!

    Tapping with your new shoes isnt a big thing. Tapping and staying put makes a lot of difference. But going out there dancing might just set you free.

    going out there might set one free, but it takes a lot of convincing to go out there to dance again 🙂

    thats the in the end, i have said, i am just tapping seated in my seat 🙂

    so, yeah, its been a while since the new shoes have been worn and been a while since i have danced 😉
