better world

Bigger Shoes

When I was young, I used to wear my father’s shoes & stomp around, making the world a better place for us all & today I see I’m not the only one who did that & those shoes aren’t anywhere big enough for who we are now.


If they’d listen to me this world’d be a better place, my grandpa used to say & my grandma always nodded & said, you’re right. Someday we’re going to kick ourselves for that one & he’d frown & turn off his hearing aid.
