Walk a mile in my shoes!
I will give my shoes to walk a mile in them.
I will give you my shoes so that you can step into my life and have an experience.
I could give you my shoes so that you can see what I hold inside but I know that you can never handle what I deal with.
Can you handle rejection on every aspect of your life.
Can you handle disappointments and being let down by the ones you love?
You see I have to stand in front of the mirror and recite to myself how I'm loved and accepted.
Can you handle the numbness of the heart that desires to be loved?
Can you handle the failed friendships, the ones you thought were your friends having you begging for their glances.
Can you handle a life filled with loneliness, no one to hold and no one to call a friend?
Can you handle the tears that never flow?
Can you handle failed dreams, raped opinions and aborted words?
Can you handle sleepless nights filled with ambition?
I could give you my shoes to walk a mile but I doubt you'd last a second.
I could give you my shoes to walk a mile but your heart wouldn't be able to handle it....
