I Go Where My Feet Take Me

......................................................................................................................................

I love my feet they are the best,
To take me on untraveled paths.
They tramp along with little rest,
Until I’m panting shallow breaths.

Making tracks across the countryside,
They lead the way while I just follow.
Not content with trucks or cars to ride,
They walk until my legs become as Jell-O.

It’s my feet that often guides the way,
And leaves me tired and well expended.
Then, it’s not always nice the words I say,
When the day of rambling trails has ended.

Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate my feet,
They lead me out in early morning sunrise.
It’s because of them that I and nature meet,
And while they touch the earth, my spirit flies.

    Even with the metatarsalgia and other foot problems I have, I am so grateful I can still get around and enjoy the "rambling trails" that take us through so many beautiful place. Nicely stated, Virginia! Love, Carolyn
