Just a girl, a child, a dancer -
In her room, alone this night.
With her shoes around her, lying
As she looks up, all eyes, no sight.
Just a dream, a hope, a future -
Nothing but a distant fantasy,
A stretch each day, an exercise
That shapes her life for all to see.
She will succeed, she knows it well -
If any stop her, she will fight
For the right to be herself forever
Dancing, dancing, towards the light.
