My feet, I’ve big ones and I’m insecure when people stare at them. But through the years and over the course of my adventures, not once have they complained.
I’m thankful for my feet. Every time I feel that my legs can’t handle another step, I think about people who cannot walk–literally and figuratively. I’m reminded of people who don’t have the privilege to wander because of not having this basic ability.
No number of gears and gadgets in the world can replace our feet. Seldom do people realize that it only takes one step and they’ve already traveled. A couple more and that’s already an adventure. I vow not to wait for the day to lose them (heaven forbid) until their value is appreciated.
My humungous feet,
disproportionate as you are,
I see beyond flaws as you’ve been a loyal companion.
My beloved feet,
you carry all my weight yet you never protest.
Darkness is no longer sought as pride overwhelms shame.
My traveling feet,
look how far we’ve come.
So long as I have you, I’ll keep walking.
As I climb another stair, hop on another ride, trudge another trail, swim another ocean, jump off another cliff, or ultimately walk another mile; I know you’ll stay with me in every distance.
My feet, I dedicate this post to you. It’s about time I recognize your worth.
