Torn Little Shoe String

Torn Little Shoe String

A Poem by Manpreet

"Nothing in this world is without a specific meaning, it depends on how we perceive it "


Torn little shoe string


I found little shoe string,

Single and torn,

All its silk threads,

Withered and worn

I sat and thought,

looking at it

deep and constant,

for a few hours long

there should be something,

that I can do

But surely I cannot,

use it in my shoe

What shall I do with

this little shoe string?

Should I throw it,

in that corner bin

It will be gone and,

forgotten for ever

And I would start working,

on something better

But I somehow,

was not satisfied

So I used my little,

innovative side

took few beads,

glue and  knife

used some colour and

painted it bright

Torn shoe string soon,

Changed its shape

It was a flower now

and, it looked so great

I was now happy

and feeling nice

Proudly pinned it,

on my paper kite

The kite flew up,

Soaring high and high

That little shoe string had finally,

 touched the sky

This is lovely! I love the idea that something that could be seen as garbage "touched the sky," by the end.
