Only If.... (September 4, 2012)



Another
School year
Is starting up
And I find myself
Looking backwards.

Wondering
What if I had gone
To my senior prom.

As
Whom I am
A girl
Dressed in
A formal dress.

While
Alphaville's
"Forever young"
Is played
At the last dance.

Alas
This isn't
The reality
Of what happen.

Instead
I stayed home
Conflicted
Between perception
And reality.

Of
Having to wear
To a suit
If I wished
To attend.

Might
As well been
Wearing a straitjacket
Is how I feel
About having to
Wear a suit.

Sigh.

Author's note: I can relate, to Ms. Wolf, and her wearing a suit, to her prom, which the school strongly objected to, by threatening, to call, the police on her.

  1. Now this makes me think of something that never would have occurred to me. How sad, to miss one's prom. I can well imagine a suit would have felt like a strait jacket.
