Walking on My Own

I want to be the one holding the strings
Making the intricate design
Not interwoven by my dad or my mom
I’m old enough
I’m ready
They’ve been tying things up for years
I can tie my own shoes

Oh, no, I made a knot!
Now I got one foot out the door
And the other in my mouth
I should have done one shoe at a time
