girl on a ball

agile of soul I balance my thoughts
in this circus called life it keeps me sane
in the blue colored world I have a tenuous hold at best
one misstep and I will fall so I keep my mind on the ball

striving for perfection is my profession
while people gawk at the woman performing
a feat of pure amazement
how a woman with a precarious perch is making it

lithe of form I require little
my heart burdened carries a lot of weight
I muster my core strength and bear it

with the support of the ring leader I can survive
circular energies it all comes around in time
I, in spite of the odds will continue on

my back square and my shoulders taught
I am an amazing example of perseverance
