Sitting on the park bench i look down at my shoe laces The worn tennis shoes look tired from all the walking I've done. The knots in the laces have been there since I bought the pair of shoes a couple years ago. the knot reminds me of wanting to do things on my own, i know there is a good reason for it too. The laces want to be untied but cant be untied. Its keeps the foot safe inside the shoe so it cant fall out.
