I Am

by Mira A. , Grade 7, Chico Country Day School, Chico, CALIFORNIA USA

I am a dancing girl

I wonder if i’ll get to perform a solo on stage

I hear every beat in music

I see every detail

I want to stay a dancer

I am a dancing girl

I pretend I can fly

I feel the ground beneath my feet in every turn and leap

I touch the sky

I worry that I will get injured and that that will prevent me from dancing

I cry in my mind when I fall

I am a dancing girl

I understand that life has it’s limits

I say to keep on dreaming

I dream about being a famous dancer one day

I try as hard as I can

I hope to master my difficulties

I am a dancing girl
