Editors note: Bellydance.One will run poetry articles from time to time, when the editors feel that dancing viewers will benefit, emotionally, spiritually, or physically from the art. We hope you enjoy!
When I reached the age of fifty
my spirits were so low
my marriage was quite boring
I did not know which way to go.
I felt so fat and frumpy
I did not know how to dress
I lay all day and watched T.V.
I was an awful mess.
But then a friend said `this is wrong`
our lives we must enhance
she said we are going down the town
we are going to learn to dance.
So I started belly dancing
it was not very hard
and now I am beautiful and sexy
and my name's Sheharizade.
