Centre stage
Poised and ready
All that was, is to be
Centre stage
And she takes flight
Wondrous, just the sight
 
Stage right
Breathless in exhilaration
All balanced on perfection
Stage right
Her foot but a move misplaced
Perfect precision defaced
 
Stage wing
All that was, will never be
Failure of a destiny
Stage wing
But a wing of failure to be?

Or perhaps an alternate destiny
