I dance in the dark,
trying to find the light.
Around and around I sway,
through the day and night.
Dancing in circles everywhere.
Where do I go now?
The light can only tell.
The light will pull me out of the dark. Patience is always well.

I found the brevity of this poem to add considerably to its overall effect. I love your meaning in it: it seemed to convey to me a feeling of being slightly lost and yet faithful that you'll find the way. Well done!
