Cast Their Shoes Into The Street


cast their shoes into the street
arrange them disarrayed and non-uniform
distribute them single, bundled, in heaps piled high,
upside down, and on their sides showing the wear

cast their shoes into the street
they are the shoes of millions
that can no longer be worn
unwillingly donated
souvenirs’ on display

cast their shoes into the street
place them so I must tread softly
to walk among them
to remember
to never forget

cast their shoes into the street
I look forward and wonder
whose next

  1. If any one would do this to my shoes, they will receive the most horrendous death ever by my hands. 😛 Jokes apart, this was a very deep and meaningful piece. Very beautifully put. 🙂 Thank you so much for the follow. You have a lovely blog. And nice to e-meet you. 🙂
