Magical Shoes Poem – Moral Poems

Magical Shoes Poem

We always need something to remind us who we are and how we should treat others in this short life. The shoes in this poem represent the potential we have to make the world a better place.
Let the poem do the talking πŸ™‚

Magical Shoes

Everybody has a pair of shoes
That makes anger disappear
They turn hate into love
Make you brave, not to fear

They lead your feet to the homeless
So that you can make their day
Make the world a nicer place
To live in and to stay

With them, you are not selfish
But all you try to do is give
Make you realize that life is short
So we should all simply live

Everyone has these shoes
No bodies have ever gone
So why do some thoughtless people
Not put their shoes on?

    You really rock….what a way to push people to GIVE..

    God gives
    And man lives
    And the man who gives
    In him god lives…

    What a delightful poem. I really like the concept of a certain pair of shoes that bring out the best of us. It’s a complex idea so simply created – thanks for this, and thanks also for visiting my blog.

    The stray dogs roaming
    On the streets in the market stalls
    All alone finding food to survive
    The breeding then the owners throw away

    In the day; in the night
    It makes no difference when need to survive
    Sniffing food throwing on the floor or streets
    Sometimes rummaging around in the dustbins

    The stray dogs fear in their eyes
    Any significant goodness seems gone
    In the dogs’ minds surviving is the game
    Sniffing around care not what people say

    Study the dogs the significant of human lives
    When you are poor, living hands to mouths
    The fear of the unknown always linger in their minds
    Dare not aggressively pursuing afraid to know

    The rejection and run down of dignity
    It breaks a person losing control
    Living in fear when money is the game
    Without it what life will be?

    To turn around life
    One has to forget
    The background of a living
    Try it harder forget about letdown

    It is still holding true
    β€œNo venture no gain”
    One shouldn’t be a stray dog
    Losing all hope for a home

  11. Old Grizz says:

    I have a pair of those shoes. Not the colorful ones like in your post. It would be nice if more people would wear theirs. Like you say, “we all have a pair”. Unfortunately to many people shove them in the back of their closet. Nice post

  12. Marinela says:

    Old Grizz you are so true! Some people do shove them in the back of their closet but i hope they have got the power to take them out and put them on as soon as possible! Before they like being barefoot πŸ™‚

    Shoes are very comfortable, soft, warm, and protect you from the elements.
    If people would be like shoes helping and protecting those around them,the world most certainly would benefit a lot.

  46. @caravanserai, Your poem reminds me of a song by the Be Good Tanyas; it’s called “Dogsong.” Lovely.

    @Marinela, This is a sweet poem. I like the way you’ve used shoes, which are the necessities of travel. And we are all traveling through this life. Also, your blog is beautiful. Nice design!
