What would they say to you, if they could speak?

A month ago, I and my twin pair
had come out of the shoe industry.


With no big hopes for future, we knew
our span in your life would be transitory.


But now that we have our own voice,
we can at least let you know our choice,


of living lavishly inside your wooden shoe rack,
and not lying in your dirty lavatory.


And let us tell you that we hate it
when you take us out for long walks.


It’s such a torture to smell your stinky feet.
Do you ever mind wearing your socks?


And yes, my partner always quarrels
and that’s the reason we’re often not found together.


But hey! now you would not need to find us,
we can tell you the whereabouts of each other.


Oh! And my pair wants me to talk to you about
the wrong roads that you always take.


She’s like really highly pissed off
with all the stupid decisions that you make.

And what’s with stuffing your socks into us?
And using mud to clean off shit from our face?

You might like cuddling to stuffed teddy bears
but let us tell you, we need our space!

And I just hate being your dog’s favourite chewing toy.
Buy it some ball or a hoola hoop!

But I’m glad that we can now alert you from
stepping us into it’s dirty poop.

Well you know, treat us good if you want favours.
We’re no Nike, we’re Prada!

Remember, if we shoes could speak,
your journey would be a saga!

So, now we want you to get ready
to go to places that you love exploring.

Ohh! but please let us guide you this time,
that same old route is so BORING!

Shoes literally run your worlds!
I recently bought myself new shoes, and while keeping them in my shoe rack, I had to remove my old withered shoes to make room for the new ones. While doing so, I realised that my shoes do not even last for more than 2 or 3 months. I once read somewhere that your attitude towards your shoes tells a lot about your character.

Clearly, my character is evil!

But then, a sudden thought sprang my mind and I wondered, what if shoes could speak ? One thing is for sure, there would not be any nice things that my shoes would say to me! 😀


They would continuously yell at me for being a pathetic owner and hate me for lending them to my friends. May be they would demand for a new lace every week, or they could be bitching about the new expensive one’s in the market. There could even be quarrels between the branded ones and the not-branded-but-look-cute ones. Or they might be having love affairs with my socks. But the best part about it, is that they’d at least remind me of washing them at regular intervals. How I wish that could happen!

So next time when you pull out your shoes, turn them over and try to listen to what they’ve got to say! If at all they had the ability to speak, your life journeys would not have been obscure, for they would have become tales and sagas. 😉

What would your shoes say to you if they could? Mind sharing? Leave a reply! Also, I would love to know your favourite brands or categories of shoes! 🙂
