A day in my shoes ~ by Niimble A day in my shoes ~ by Niimble
Inspired by the poem by Denis E. Manuel ~

Would you like to walk a day in my shoes?
Where the world isn't full of many hues
Just the color of darkness
So dark that you can’t see a light
And you’ve just about given up the fight

Days filled with loneliness
And lots of pain
It’s enough to drive anyone insane
How would you like to walk a day in my shoes?

Days where you don’t hear those 3 little words,
I Love You
Or if you do
You don’t think it’s true

How about when you aren't seen for 3 or 4 days
And nobody calls to see if you’re okay

What about the days that you have to go to work
And have to pretend that everything is okay
But you’re wishing that the days would just pass
Adding more years to your life
And hoping it’ll soon end
How would you like to walk a day in my shoes?

How would you like to NOT feel loved
Knowing that there will never be
A releasing of doves
That symbolizes that 4 letter word
And knowing that you’re not being heard

Feeling like a hollow pecan shell
When it’s cracked
There’s nothing inside
That’s how I feel most days
Like an empty space
Anyone care to take my place
Just for a day?

But I do have 1 or 2 days that I’m happy
Just because
I know when I get to the other side
I’ll see those doves
And that’s when I’ll feel loved

So you see
Walking in my shoes ain't all bad
When I think about
What will be had…

I love this picture, the colors and angle of the camera add a nice feel to the image, along with the poem to add more details, it is a great piece.

Aw, :iconasunapfftplz: thanks! I wasn't really sure if many other deviants would like it since it's a little amateur-ish. ^^; Still, thank you soooo much! It really means a lot. :iconyuiglompplz:
