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.

  1. I’ve often looked at a pair of old shoes and thought how eloquent they are of the wearer, and the life…very well written 55–enjoyed it.

  2. nicely done. i like the line “ragged laces broken, uneven trail beneath tugging, tripping, trying to pull me down.” it’s amazing that the smallest things can be our downfall. but you know the saying “what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.” i look forward to reading more.
