The journey



Tired but excited
After walking and walking
Never stopping
Just moving and moving

Tapping with changes
Jumping into opportunities
Running after love
Tiptoeing into the unknown

The journey isn’t over
A story is being written
Moment after moment
Step by step
While walking and walking

This post is a submission to Magpie Tales #16, writing on a theme of the above illustrated shoes.

The trick is to embrace change, don't you think?

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Sometimes I feel like this, like I'm never stopping, always moving, one step and then another--one long continuous journey. But I love the positive feel of this piece.

And thank you for stopping by my blog! I look forward to getting to know you.

Yes each peir does have a tale to tell. If we can learn to walk for awhile in the other person's shoes imagine the tales we could tell. Another beautiful piece of poetry.

and what strong legs and tired feet from it all...

Love the lines:
"Jumping into opportunities
Running after love
Tiptoeing into the unknown"

Gabriela Abalo said...

Tag: the world will be a much better place is we would walk for a while in other people’s shoes. Less criticisms, expectations, fights, misunderstandings, etc. Differences will be embraced and not condemned
