Can You Walk a Mile in MsLofton's Shoes?
Can you walk a mile in my shoes?
Can you get past all the hurt and the pain that I've been through?
Can you see through all the traps that the people before me have set for me?
Can you make your way through the hole that was dug for me?
Can you see inspite of? Although the rain keeps pouring and sometimes the snow is joining.
Everything is falling all at once but can you walk a mile in my shoes?
Yes I know you've been hurt too but does that mean that you slain me, degrade me or hurt me too because I havent walked a mile in your shoes?
We should be celebrating the fact that not only did we not walk in each others shoes but the fact that we no longer have to walk in those shoes.
Celebrate the fact that God has given us some new shoes.
In fact, he said we could have any kind of shoe that we wanted, yet we still sit back and focus on those old shoes.
We still focus on those other shoes, we point the finger at the other person because our toes still hurt from those other shoes because we cannot give them up.
It's been years and we are still trying to walk in those shoes and so we have stepped up on pedestal so high that we fail to see what we have done to others or yet one another.
And all I want to know is can you walk a mile in my shoes?
Its not a being cocky is just a question?
Can you walk a mile in my shoes before you make a suggestion or assume some part of you is better than me just because of what you have been through.
Can you walk a mile in my shoes? Because life has many lessons.
