An awkward 16 year old boy stood alone on the dance floor as the rest of the crowd appeared to be dancing around him. That boy was me and this occurred during a DECA (Distributive Education Club of America) convention in upstate NY. I was a small scrawny child who was surrounded by incredible confident/cocky other students from my school district. The loneliness and isolation only built up until that pinnacle dance. It appeared as if I was standing on the dock and the world was miles away.
It felt like I was the only lone boy in the world, then out of know-where a song changed everything. PYT by Michael Jackson starting playing and sure enough a beautiful young lady started dancing with me. We spent the night having a great time and then just like a song she vanished never to be seen again. It was only one dance but it added a bit of confidence that I was surely lacking and whenever that song is played it brings me back to that special moment.
