The Comfort Of Age

there is a special comfort
always found in an old pair of shoes
well broken in
leather softened by time

it’s the same for old t-shirts
the ones that you will never throw away
even through they may be ripped and torn

it seems like most things
were made better in years past
but progress demanded speed and increased
cheaper materials used to lower production costs

not many shoe repair shops still exist
crafts and trades that made our country
have slowly disappeared

so we cling to our old shoes,
old clothes and old memories
giving us at least a sense of comfort
while we seek out the shoemakers
and artisans of today
