Pieces Of Me…

 

I forgot my shoes

In the same place I lost myself

I looked and looked, but the shoe really was gone and so was I

How I got this far, I know not

How I gave it all, is quite unclear

But piece by piece I gave myself away

‘Till I looked up today and found that I gave it all

What have I done? Who have I become?

Most importantly, where am I?

One thing is clear, this is not me

This is not where I set out to be

It certainly is not where I belong

And so flee I must, before I’m sucked back into this vortex

So I ran and I ran and I didn’t look back

And just when I thought I had outrun my tears and pain

I looked down and alas! I forgot my shoes

Sigh… Twas  a really nice pair.
