New Shoes

Stepping into new shoes can seem like a horrid task
Looking back at my clunky past
All the shadows that were cast
Freedom feels so near at last

Horrible and amazing all at once
What’s inside, I could not hide
Rest assured
I will grow and mature

Tiny bits and pieces
Young nephews and nieces
Growing old
In mind body and soul

I hold in me
A big mighty bundle of joy
Now it’s finally time
To let go of that grip
And rejoice in the mystery of life
