    I put on those old broken shoes again today
    Though they are torn and ripped they help me get along my way

    They have been broken so long I need not replace them
    Even though I have long ago bought new ones

    The broken shoes fit so well and keep me in a safe and comfortable place
    If I wear those new shoes there is no telling where they might take me

    The new pair might heal the open wounds on my feet
    May be much prettier to see and a better fit indeed

    But I have worn the old pair for so long they have become a major part of me

    Hello....

    I like this piece... it's short & sweet. It reminds us that sometimes we want a change so badly but sometimes we're just not ready, but sooner or later those old shoes are going to break down forcing you to wear those new one's. Who knows where those new one's are going to take us.... I bet someplace a whole lot better!

    I enjoyed the simplicity of this, how ever change must come eventually. Although wew may become complacent with the way things are sometimes you have to take that chance and try something new to see the beauty in life that surrounds you.
