Enlightening poem show casing bowing out gracefully

DANCE TO THE MOON AND BACK

If you’d only could see

The luster, the shine

Is not always mine

Its glorious glint

Where there is not a hint

Glamour and glitz

The showiness

The stylishness

The show business

The dancing and prancing

Is all for nothing

I kept telling myself

“The show must go on”

When I just didn’t want it to go on

I needed, wanted it all to stop

Jump off this merry-go-round

And come to firmer ground

Take a final curtain call

And say goodbye to it all

It has served its purpose, purposes

Those purposes no longer wanted or needed

I’ve heeded my inner gut feeling, feelings

And know it must be a graceful bowing out

The pain of surrender, surrendering is no longer

Here or there

I would’ve dance to the moon and back for you!

My partner in crime

But it is now time

That you find your own path

The path to enlightenment

And I know you’ll find it!

It’s out there among the throngs

Away from the limelight

The bright lights of the stage and screen

It’ll be painful

Sorrowful

But and yet your path leads elsewhere

Whether it is

North

South

East or West

You’ll know what is best

But heed this one piece of advice

Listen, watch

And now I am bowing out gracefully
