One floor
Thousands of souls
Hundreds of heels
The bride who waltzed with her groom
The Boy Scout’s rubber boots squeaking
As they walk up to receive an award
The black soles carrying those holding a casket
And the steps of the inconsolable
Dirt from the 5 year old birthday girl’s sneakers
Smooth prints from the ballerina’s slipper
Bright shining lines from the tap dancers shoe
The sole carrying souls
Shoes making their imprint
Steps of memories and events
All right below you
You leave your mark
Add to the collection
Tell your story
Let others,
Who are the future,
The past
Hear you
And add their own
To yours
