Untied Shoes

Untied Shoes

A Poem by Anastasia Purvis

I could leave here tonight
Drive far away where no one knows my name
Get lost in a crowd
Somewhere between 10th and 12th downtown

Never come back, get my life on track.
Where did I go wrong?
When I wanted a symphony
I got another sad song.

Same old story…
Everyone’s looking for Love and Glory
Tripped on an old shoe lace
Ended up falling flat on my face.

I loved the second part,
Where did I go wrong?
When I wanted a symphony
I got another sad song.

This was a COOL poem! I like it a lot! :) It's actually quite different
"Tripped on an old shoe lace
Ended up falling flat on my face."
These lines were like "sad and funny"
Keep it up! :)
