i go to put on my shoes
but they are being worn by someone else…
even though you almost fill them,
i am not certain that you understand
that under standing can not come from actually being in my shoes –
can a grasshopper, even a really big one, understand metaphor?
how can any of us fill other’s shoes,
or walk a mile in them?
all i can do is listen to Your stories –
even if i do not always understand the words….
especially in those moments where there are no words….
