Shoes

Shoes–worn and ragged–

story of a hard life

lived on the brink.

The hole in the soul

from a rocky rugged path.

Scuff marks;

Ragged laces broken, uneven

trail beneath tugging, tripping,

trying to pull me down.

Each step another chance to fall,

another mark or scuff.

Or a step forward

to shiny new shoes.
