My Old Shoes : Day 07 – ( My Prompts )


 For busy feet that walk, protection

it’s  office’s rules

to carry your shoes with your feet on


Looking not like a pauper or fool

or step on a stool

on the road you can run like a bull


The service can’t be bought nor bargained

with those unscathed new

long, it carried me through sun or rain 


Now it thinned by time and aged his sole

the ebb tide’s nearing

to migrate from dusty road to home  


And your den’s  the original box

’till time will decide

have you repaired or store you with locks
