The Paddock BootsMy paddock boots lay outside the doorThe Paddock Boots8 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
They had been torn, banged, and dirtied
And the scent of a farm came with them too;
The smelly sweat and animals followed me around like I was their leader
I'd only wear them at the barn
A clop clop clop came from underneath them with every step I'd take
And a small trail of mud grew as I walked
From riding horses to cleaning stalls,
I have never washed them
Every particle of dust and dirt had a meaning,
All the things I've don't in these have been caked onto them for me to recall
My boots were my scrapbook
After thinking to myself for some time, I went to the door and pulled them in,

The alarm goes off, it's only 5: 30.
It's pitch black out, and my room's cold.

I was debating on stopping-by
My God those lines...
I still pulled into your lot
Found a spot in line.
Chicken and soda.
Extra waffle fries.
Damn the thought of it
Brought a tear to my eye,
The taste is just so divine.
Then I checked my facebook
As I waited for food.
An article on the Huffington Post,
Informed me that this line consisted of mostly homophobes.
5 million dollars donated to Gay-hate groups.
So I went next door
To get some Taco Bell.
No hate tacos
Sounded just as good.

Beauty is defined by
How you act.
Not by the number on the
Starving doesn't work.
Purging doesn't work.
Pills don't work.
The girl you see
In the mirror is
Just the way she is
Don't get upset because
You don't match up
To the media's
Cutting won't work.
Crying won't work.
Dying won't work.
Society is ugly.
