My feet are big and wide. They carry a load that's unimaginable at times. A load that's often minimized by others and praised by most. My feet have callous on the heels and ball. An obvious sign of the walk-in life that's taken daily unassisted at times. These feet help me carry 2 additional humans who are smaller than me and fully need me.
These feet have been forced to travel some paths just to make ends meet, just to eat. These feet though pretty when done, have lots of wise tales to share with those who are in the trenches.
These feet have stood alone, alone during times when I should've been held close by family, however, those that I needed couldn't stand like my feet, they weren't built for this road. A road of fighting for the life of a child that didn't ask for these complications yet received them. Their feet can't carry what the universe didn't assign them too. So I had to forgive so my feet could keep walking towards peace.
These big ole feet have stood in heels, flats, sneakers, and sandals with straps. These feet have carried trauma, denial, stress, anxiety, depression, and hesitation. Loneliness, inadequacy, hurt, suffering, pain (shit I could go on and on lmao).
Now my feet carry, love, wisdom, experience, stability, and motivation. Adequacy, confidence, fearless, honesty (need I say more). These feet have led me to other's who share the same path or looking for clarity on their path.
These feet have walked away from those who mean no good whether unintentional or intentional. These feet have walked in some alleys and along beaches and have faced both life and death (literal and Figuratively). Though heavy more often not, I wouldn't change the path these feet walk!
