Another Type of Jail


I have escaped the knife,
But I am trapped in another kind of jail.
A jail that hasn't been popular since the 1950's.
A medicinal corset that has heavy metal stays.

I now know why Scarlett O'Hara could hardly breathe!

I can say though,
It has done wonders for my figure and my posture.
And I have hope again,
Hope of walking down the aisle on my wedding day.

Hope of the first dance,
Hope of having my two oldest children walk me down the aisle.
Hope for a life outside this bed,
