Why do you want me 

To wear a dress or a skirt 

Just leave me alone 


The author's comments:

Honest, Raw, Simple. 

That's what this haiku is.

From win and lose and still somehow

Oh man, I'm so sorry. I know, one of my friends wanted to come to my homecoming but couldn't because of Covid. I hope you can next year Lydiaq!

I was invited to a homecoming even though I am a homeschooler, but the next time I asked the inviter about it, she said I'd passed the registration and I couldn't come. So I'll be stuck at home the same as all other years. I actually thought I was going to do something normal.

Your comment has a ton of emotion and clarity SparrowSun, cool. And same, I had a picture day awhile back and I wore a dress, still not sure why I did that, guess I was naive.

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)
And the words I say most often: "Where was I?"
