A Pair of New Shoes

One day i was sitting on top of a branch

thinking on where to go tomorrow

then my friend came around

he gave me a news, about a party

i was so happy, but i have a little problem

what is that he ask

i need a pair of new shoes

i cant provide any for now, he said

i felt so sad, but i have to move on


i was walking on the road

someone came to me

he told me to change my foot steps

i told him if you are telling me to change my footsteps

do that with a pair of new shoes

cause our footwears determines our footsteps.
