Look at my feet
They are swelling in the heat.
But even when it is cold
these feet of mine, still show big bulges
I know for sure this is a result of wearing
Shoes that don't fit right.
The only pair I own is so worn out
My poor feet are left to the mercy
Of where I tread.
The sun beats on them.
The cold makes them change color.
But the shoes on my feet are truly making a statement,
Only the sole is left standing, with the back attached.
That's where I place my tired feet.
I am using the brittle laces, to tie my feet in securely.
But of course they keep popping out,
And I quickly pop them right back in.
I don't want anyone to see me, for it will put me to shame.
I could have just as well go barefooted
But the splinters, broken glasses, stones
And even parasites, spell more damage.
I need a pair of good shoes, any shoes will do.
It doesn't have to be the latest style!
What I need is a pair that will carry me
So I can move a little faster
To get to where I need to be.
Give me that pair of shoes
And I will leave my footprints, where it matters.
I will move in the right direction
When I get that pair of shoes.
I will keep walking, until I get where I want to be
Just give me that pair of shoes and you will see.
And he awoke to a brand new pair of shoes, laying by his side
And when he finally put his tired feet in that pair of shoes,
He knew this was the opportunity he was seeking.
With his new shoes on, he was about to conquer the world
And on his way he did not forget to leave a pair of shoes,
For anyone in need, who comes along.
DREAMS CAN COME TRUE!
