Running Shoes

Running Shoes

A Poem by Alexander Dillon

I hug your feet snugly,
providing comfort
and safety from the road,
rocks, the water,
and mud.

With you
I am free,
alive.

We race over every terrain,
exploring new places.
Nomads.
Vagabonds.

I am your most selfless
servant and friend.
Taking every blow
directed
at your tender feet.

But today
my tread is worn.
My cushion,
bare.

My sole broken
in service to you.
Now I am thrown into the garbage heap.

Accompanied by
the other refuse of your extravagant life.
