Foot Wears You Go Famous - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

Oh dear pretty red slippers,
You go famous and go famous,
In this land of hope and joy,
And in concrete road or highway,
In thorny forest road and
In rocky path of hill,
Everywhere you protect feet,
From hotness of summer
And from coldness of winter,
Degenerating selves you serve,
People use and at last throw,
But still you do your duty
Providing security to feet!
In all seasons you serve in joy,
Never you blame, never you claim.

Your incarnations we remember,
From earthen body to wooden,
From plastic age to elastic,
From metallic to rubber time,
As you get your bodies and shapes,
You remain happy and serve others.

At modern age no one can walk
In bare feet without your pair,
Either in muddy or in sandy
Or in rocky or in jerky path,
All need your help, all need!
Although they keep you aside,
Still you hold feet in your laps.

Foot wears you go famous, go famous,
In this Earth, in this universe,
In many galaxies, in multiverses,
In great-great-great universes,
You go famous to serve feet of angels,
You go famous to serve feet of stars,
Serving planets, sun, moon and all,
Foot wears, you go famous, go famous.

    I always keep a pair of jandals, like the ones in the photo. No question, people need footwear every time they step out the door: bare feet give no protection, and don't look good. The right, fashionable footwear can be noticed, even famous. I like to keep my shoes polished and shiny-black, brown or blue. (Report)Reply

    Recently recovered after over a dozen years, the ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz came immediately to mind. Humans evolved to walk and run barefooted, and shoes, (especially high heels) are often detrimental to our posture and foot mechanics; but my soles are delicate and I need my sneakers. (Report)Reply

    Footwears are often treated as insignificant and taken for granted.
    But their importance can never be ignored. They provide protection for our feet, one of the
    most important parts of our body.
    A beautifully crafted write. A great tribute to footwears.10+++
