You are not an arrow

You are not an arrow.
There is no string behind you.
You can just go.

Move with purpose.
Move with grace.
Move with the focus of an arrow.
Even though you are not.

Aim to be true.
Aim with control.
Aim for the heart.

You are not an arrow.
You are a dancer.
With a purpose.
To dance comfortably together.
With your partner.
Through thick and thin.
Good or bad.

I wrote this after a particularly insightful private lesson of Argentine Tango. As you can see, I am no regular writer of poems, so don’t shot me for making poetic mistakes.
