One fat foot
In front of one skinny foot
And you keep walking
That’s how kt goes.

One fat foot
Placed tenderly
Bursting from its custom-leather confines
Stomping inelegantly.

When you place your fat foot
You know sometimes it takes the lead
With its pain and sickness
Sometimes it chooses the path and your other foot must follow.

Your other foot.
Your skinny foot.
Your normal foot.
Your normal life.

Sometimes it feels like it’s dragging behind you
Sometimes it feels that it will never catch up.

But don’t despair.

Gather your strength and swing your leg
And let your skinny foot take the lead again.
Trust that it’s never far behind
And all you need to do is keep walking.

Keep walking.

Keep walking.
