Dance Your Essence


By Savannah Skye




Dance to see yourself
Dance be yourself
Dance to free yourself...

Dance your essence...

Dance your essence
Back into your presence
Around you spin
Back to life's begin

Dance your essence
Beyond your presence
Close your eyes
As your body sighs

Dance your essence
Away from your presence
Let go of your fears
Watch them disappear

Dance your essence
Within your presence
Spin and twirl
Into a spiraling whirl

Dance your essence
Outside your presence
Let go of your being
With your 3rd eye seeing

Dance your essence
Trance into your presence
Where all are one
Like when life begun

Dance your essence
Right into your presence
Feel yourself transcend
Beyond your mind's end

Dance your essence
Into your presence
Trance to become one
With the whole of the sum

Dance your essence
