Lend Me Your Shoe Strings - Poem by Zandi Wardle
Lend me your shoe strings for the journey ahead is great!
As I take a step each day, I will not go with my shoes untied in this bumpy field,
The thorns that grow in those bushes could pierce my feet and poke my ankles,
The journey has begun, oh out of my way please!
Let me tie these strings and tighten them as I get a move.
I need your shoe strings to rely on,
For mine are torn and dusted,
Oh be at ease, this trip will remain the most memorable one.
As I indulge in this experience, walking right in the grass that is above my head,
With waters across, that I will use to quench my thirst.
Oh mother earth, strengthen me as I walk in this world of unpredictability.
Reward me with a peace of mind as it is a price of my destiny,
When I return, I need a story to project.
Allow me to climb over to new territories,
Dear friend, please do not worry,
I will not forget you.
With the strings you’ve lent me,
In this journey, at this time,
Let’s hope they don’t let me down! ! !
To be continued…
