Dancing Through The Darkness

A Sillouhette of A Woman standing with one arm reaching up gracefully while standing on her tip toes with one leg and the other leg stretched out behind her like a ballerina.

I always knew that when I grew up, I wanted to be a Prima ballerina.

According to my mother the moment I learned to walk was the moment I learned to dance. It wasn’t long after that, that I was performing pirouettes and arabesques throughout our living room.

I thought back on the memories of my mom smiling, while wringing her hands nervously, as I tried performing the risky moves.
