Shoes

Prompt from Poetic Asides: write an "other side of the fence" poem ... attempt to empathize with the other person, animal or situation

Before you decide
to criticize,
please try on for size
my beat-up,
run-down,
worn-out,
done-in
shoes that have
mounted mountains,
crossed rocky creeks,
greeted the streets,
paced the halls of malls;
then you might
understand me
a little better.
