Don't Know

Doing my best
And you told me to leave
And told me to stay there
Until I knew what to do.
But how could I dance
When no one
Would teach me
The steps?

Confused in the centre
All whirling around
And there's me,
Don't know what to do
Don't know how to jump
How to land:
Know nothing,
No steps.

Awkward and broken
My dream shattered
By reality -
I can't do this
I don't know
What to do
I don't know
The steps.

This dance is
Too complex for someone
Like me,
And I know it.
The one thing
I'm sure of, since
I couldn't tell you
The steps. 

The End
