To every woman on the planet I say, "Set Your Inner Diva Free"! You know she's in there.....she's always been in there....


With the grace of an angel
And the guile of a sprite
Every woman dances to her own rhythm,
A distinctive tempo she feels to her core!
But deep inside her eternally maturing guise
Where rhythms reach towering crescendos…
Lies an Inner Diva that wrestles with decorum
Rarely, if ever, showing herself!
Nurturer, lover, friend, role model,
Groomed to ignore her Inner Diva
The fabulous tempo continuously rises!
In my youth I saw her in the mirror once…
A fleeting, mischievous twinkle
In the eyes of a woman not yet mature enough
To know she was more than what she saw!
Then life happened, marriage, children, divorce …
A towering stairway to the stage
Where my Inner Diva now dances
Wildly gyrating hips keeping perfect time
To deliriously happy music long ignored!
I have set my Inner Diva free!
And she is beautiful, and she is wise…
And my heart is at last one with my mind!
Now the dancing is intense, rhythm steady
Music rocking my world…
And the stage set for eternity!

Wow! I love to dance and there's nothing better than a footloose diva to gyrate with. It's primal as your poem.

Very nice Anna and yes it is a shame that so many women and a few men for that matter stiffle the lighter side of life and living instead of followint their instincts and the music...

I like your Inner Diva (and your Outer Diva). She sounds like lots of fun. My Inner Heva likes to hide, but given an occasional Mai Tai, has been known to make an appearance. Patrick

I like the positive, uplifting feel here. I feel this way a few times a year when I add Fuzzy Navels to the picture. Hugs:)
