That's too mainstream
Welcome to the inside of my head

After an announcement yesterday outlining what girls (and only girls) could and could not wear to school today (even though it was 80 degrees and the school would not turn on the air conditioner) someone posted this in a stairwell. A lot of girls were supportive of these posters, seeing as some teachers were sending down absolutely any girls wearing shorts.

Maybe I’ll always look back
over my shoulder at what I was,
wind in my face,
half caught up in a sailor’s knot of memory,
half drifting through salt water flavored
gusts of breeze
so visibly free.

Maybe I’ll always have ghosts
from old photos
like spilled sand from an hour glass
lingering under my feet,
whispering my name,
half like a reminder
half just to scare me.

Maybe I’ll always
wonder what I’d be like
if my scars didn’t run so deep,
half hidden from age
half because they were never
truly visible
for anyone to see.
