I Will Dance

I will do all of the hard, 

impossible-seeming things 

and then I will dance

After burying someone

After being left or leaving 

After forgiving or forgetting 

   betrayals and resentment

   humiliation and hostility

After all the afters that twists hearts

I will smile into the darkness

And light shadows

As I dance and dance and dance.
