Shoes That Fit

Some did not. As a child it
didnít matter
if they were a bit
tight. So long as there was
a minimum of comfort--
beggars canít be choosy they say.
But I was not a beggar
nor poor I thought since my
friends were in the same canoe.
We didnít compare ourselves
to the other side of town where
the richies lived. We found
out later in life that too much
grasping meant missing out
on memories of down-to-earth
childhood days.
