Walk That Mile In Their Shoes Poem by SarahLaney Long

Walk That Mile In Their Shoes



You say your life is terrible,
But people would give anything to be you for a day,
They'd let you walk a mile in their shoes,
Just to see what you'd come back and say.

You get to thinking your life is the worst,
When there's people starving for water and food,
You say they work you harder than anyone else,
But did you think about the soldiers who protect you?

You get yourself to believe,
That the only way to move on is by death,
But do you look into the long run,
To see that it's going to hurt someone else?

You don't get your way at times,
So you get mad, you fuss, and raise hell,
Well do you think about the prisoners,
That's innocent, locked up, and stuck in jail?

You get to go to school everyday,
But you don't appreciate it at all,
You even get transfered there for free,
When the people who can't go would walk.

Do you ever look into your future,
To see what kind of person you can be? ,
What people would give just for a chance,
To have the goal your able to achieve?

There's always someone out there,
That has got it a lot tougher than you,
So show them your loyalties, with faith,
And watch what they have to go through.

It isn't easy at all,
Just walk that mile in their shoes,
If you think you got it bad,
Try and do what they've got to do.
