Soul of a Shoe

I once adorned you with style and grace
My God this truly is an atrocious place

My soul is worn and molded to you
This place is so surreal, yet it is true 

Nothing but pain and fear now fills a face
That once polished me with style and grace

I now sit here upon this massive pile
How in the world can that Nazi smile?

As I sit here on this pile lonely and blue
I fear to think what has become of you

As I sit here upon this pile of deceit
I wish I could comfort your feet

Regardless of what these Nazi’s do
I’m so proud to have been your shoe

    Dear Michael, A very clever personification with great depths of meaning too. YOU NEVER CEASE TO AMAZE ME!!!!! Thank you for your kind comments today. I have been away from the soup for far too long. How is school going? yf4l.Lainie

    A very nice and interesting ending as if shoe is living being

    Great use of personification, giving life and human feelings to the shoes, MJ. This is a quite compelling description of mankind's darkest hours. Best wishes in the contest, Carolyn
