"old Shoe"

    "old Shoe"

                     I walked in style for many of miles
                      with plenty of stubs along my path

                     lessons I have learned I have definitely
                     earned and nothing came quick and fast

                     Sweat is in motion and it flowed like thee
                     ocean drowning my sole within

                     Time was the essence as i learned with each
                      lesson.. each day counting more then the past!

                      With each tic....of the clock I met a new sock
                      which lightened up my soggy ways!

                      My years have past and I no longer walk fast
                      and cracks and wear have found my way

                      Tired and worn and some what torn my bones
                       began to ache!

                      What should I do!? I'm like an old shoe and like
                       a coffin the closet is my final resting Place!!!

    Lol....LOVED this....it so put a smile on my face....it was so cute and lyrical....the visuals it gave had me smiling from ear to ear....I'm so surprised it hasn't ever been read before....I for one am glad that I took the time to do so....nicely done...Cher

    Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
