If Only They Could Speak
Well I am sorry for my friends that are made out of rich materials and fabrics because they last longer. Well if you would really want to know how frustrating it is to be a soccer shoe; then be careful or I shall commit suicide and you will end up bare foot.
Boom boom you always hear me bumping into soccer balls or even on other people’s legs. Do you find it funny? I don’t like it when I fly off your leg because you forgot to tie my hair in a knot? It hurts me, because the second I bump into the floor, my skin gets scraped off. Do you know I suffocate in water puddles, or when you are mad at someone and you force me to step on my friend with my sharp pointy cleats? Well, in the middle of soccer games, players slide tackle, I get slid on the floor and with my head I stop a powerful soccer ball. The worst part is when people swear at me "Because of your silly shoe, I would have scored".
Sometimes I relax for around an hour or two but when it is time for your soccer practice I scream with terror and my second cousin the sock screams even louder when the human’s smelly and sweaty feet are put into him. The worst of all is when I am filled with black spots and no one can get the dirt off me unless if I have to get my hair plucked out then soaked in burning hot water that burns me. I am a shoe have mercy on me! I am an old shoe and I am paralyzed because of a soccer ball so whenever I want to run to my freedom just like in “Riding Freedom”.
If you think it is easy to be a soccer shoe then just empathize, imagine yourself blocking a powerful ball with your stomach or suffocate in mud or water puddles. PLEASE TREAT US BETTER, I promise I will not make you walk barefoot to school.
