These Boots Have Taken Me 

I have traipsed through judgment

on a sodden journey.

Its idle opinion

has followed me wearing

.

ill fitting shoes. It’s tried

blistering my soul as

it’s strutted on its own

path and mine is unknown.

.

Ignorantly it wades

in its hatred my strength.

Never will it repress

as gossips live in ruts.

.

These boots have taken me

through a hard life lesson.

I walk confidently

as I trample on their scorn.
