The dance

You and I.

In the back in forth.

The dance that we do. I leading. You following.

You watching while I continue to dance.

Pushing you

until I make you dance.

Years

we go back and forth.

You in your silence screaming. I in my fear yelling louder to be heard.

You and I here. There. 

Here is where we stopped seeing. We stopped seeing the fear.

The fear that pushed the voices louder. The fear that hushed the silence louder.

Years we go back and forth.

The dance.

The dance where no one leads.

The dance where we listen and follow music that silence plays.

Where the children fill the space that our fears are crawling through.

Years we go back and forth.

Until we don’t.

Until the music stops.

Until we say no more.

No more of the back and forth.

No more of the dance.

The Lord will fight for you; you need only be still. Exodus 14:14
