Life’s Intricate Tango
As life trips me backwards.
As life teases me forward.
One tiny step
Forced through the muck of life
Three leaps in the opposite direction,
Like a great intricate Tango
Danced to life’s silent tune.
I keep trying,
Against the herculean forces
That would keep me chained to despair.
Is all it takes in the right direction.
Until there is no more room for doubt.
Until there are no more tears left to cry.
And I pick myself up
To repeat the cycle anew.
Weary but determined
That I will not let the demons of destruction
Bar me from achieving my goals.
