someone else's shoes...

                                                   if you could walk a mile in my shoes
                                                   and i could walk in yours
                                                   then you would probably smile at me
                                                   and I would smile at you too
                                                   instead of whispering behind each others back
                                                   if you could walk in my shoes
                                                   and i walked a mile in yours
                                                   maybe you would help me up
                                                   instead of pushing me down
                                                   and i would hold my hand out to you
                                                   to grasp you when you fall
                                                   instead of watching you go to the ground
                                                   if i walked a mile in your shoes
                                                   and you could walk in mine
                                                   possibly we could walk a mile together
                                                   and talk about things

  1. Kristen, this is an all time favourite post for me;
    i love the words somehow they really resonate with the essence of love and friendship...
    But your artwork; the ballerina shoes, tuck to the side of your art paper,somewhat shy and yet so bold, the colours working together beautifully... the composition is simple and yet... i really love this.
