Thank You, Shoelaces

Thank you,



For always keeping me knots

Well, no not really


You help to keep my shoes on

So they don’t become unruly and wild

Go running off, leaving me barefoot


Dragging every morning

Through the mud and puddles

Until I am tripping, tripping

Over you to find myself


Fit to be tied and I am always fumbling

Tugging and pulling

Until I give up and shove you down

In my shoes


So maybe I am not really thankful

But yes I know, I know

You are always here

Untied and dragging along with me

Day in and day out
