a conversation with shoes . . .

thus - they spoke . . . (through the voice-box of its human servant)

thou are too wear shoes,
thou
are too lace upon your feet burdens of synthetic leathers and toxic plastics: toxins, molded in far away lands by faceless servants to un-controlled consumerism.

thou are too wear shoes,
thou
are NOT to be bare! how dare you be bare, how dare you free your soul, by baring your soles . . .
bare,
allows you again to feel,
bare
allows you again to understand,
bare
allows you again to appreciate,
bare
allows you again to live life . . . FREE.
and
thou are NEVER to be free.

thou are too wear shoes,
thou
must follow the herd, thou must be the sheep in the flock awaiting to be lead, thou must never deviate from the path-worn,
thou
must FEAR all that has NOT been advertised, documented or otherwise endlessly regurgitated via HD-screens which feed "thought" . . . 24 hours a-day.

thou are too wear shoes,
thou
MUST maintain servitude towards global domination of making simple-barefoot walking/running obsolete,
thou
MUST never again absorb the pure beauty of mud, rain, snow . . . of twigs fallen, of squirrels scurrying about, of edgy-rocks reminding you to slow-the-hell-down: and simply, enjoy the run.

thus - they continued to speak (though the voice-box of its human servant)

yet . . .

I'd heard it all before,
and
thus: I refused to respond, and turned, going upon my way -
as
my soles are BARE . . . THUS -
my
soul is FREE!
