A Dance

Would you dance with the devil if he paid your bill
let him blur your vision and shape your will?
Let him steal your freedom to have your say
and follow his rules blindly, rather than find your own way.

Would you dance with him if he was willing to pay the price
of all your mistakes, your careless
and the days you aren’t nice.
Let him distort your vision and help you pretend
that this world isn’t crying and that all is well.

Would you choose to dance with the devil or hold on and fight
Just by staying away from the ones who really aren’t nice.
Would you bear some struggle if it would help you stay
true to yourself and a better way?


Because our relationships shape our minds.
