It's a poem about relationships and withering away of identity.



Yellow shoes

Yellow shoes


Years have passed
Yet it all comes back

As I pull open
the rusty Vault
They fall on my face
My yellow shoes.

Those disdainful eyes
as you said
Who wears yellow shoes?
I withered a little
And I kept them away .

I remember the list
Is long,
Of things stowed
away,Forgotten .
Pieces of me all stuffed
In this dusty vault?


I pick up them up
Bubbling with laughter
I twirl, and I yell,
I wear yellow shoes!

Bravo! People like to criticize on how you look
or what you wear. I liked your poem.
