MY FEET DON'T FIT THE FOOTPRINTS

when young, we're taking baby steps
an awkward little gait
and as we get a grasp on things
we start to escalate
.
our stride becomes more confident
but still at times we fall
and if we trip while running fast
we may not rise at all
.
for life can be most painful
when it steps upon your toe
my feet don't fit the footprints
that i fashioned long ago
.
it's great to be a dancer
and to move around with flair
i only end up foolish
when i strive for fred astaire
.
for gliding is not easy
when your shoes are filled with sand
impossible, you find
when on the sea you try to stand
.
and when the ice is thin
the prudent people take it slow
my feet don't fit the footprints
that i fashioned long ago
