New Shoes


I swapped intellect for art,

knowledge for passion,

and money for happiness.


I cut my hair,

went brown, blonde,



I traded trainers for Docs

and became a cliche.


I went back to trainers

and joined a gym.


Too skinny, too fat,

too in-between.


I went green with envy,

then green in diet.


Kale, avocado,

pressed smoothies –

the organic stuff.


I binged and dyed my hair.

Contemplated pinks, purples,




I changed my shoes again.
