Footprints


I have with me so many footprints by my side
Some are visible so UN detected by the eye
If you’re looking for your footprints and u can`t see
Maybes it`s because you weren’t important enough for them to be

People leave their prints wherever they go
Some are heavy so are light as snow
Some are scared with torture and pain
Some are healed with self-confidence and self-gain

When you walk do u look for your print
Do you ever think of the impact it may have deemed
Would you wonder if your print was safe
What would happen if you just found an empty space

I`m taking my footprint and making it stand
Somewhere out in this horrible crowd
Making it loud and heavy to be known
So no one can scar it or scratch it with a stone

Sand or stone my print will hold
Take it away you will get thrown
I wanted it seen and last for long
So please don’t take it or I’ll be gone

But while I walk and see my print
I`m hoping yours will follow and be by me
Standing strong side by side
For all the world to see there here with pride

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
