It is said that a man’s foot size is proportional to the size of his penis.
Not sure what that means for women, nor if the former is really true…
So with that you probably realize,
my feet are of not a regular size.
I have one large foot and
one slightly still large,
yet smaller foot.
My right foot is a size US 12/13 women’s (~10.5 mens)
with the equivalent in the UK 43.
Yet my left foot is a full size to 1.5 smaller.
In this picture above,
my feet are both fully back into the heel of the shoe,
you can appreciate the size difference. Freakish.
When I was younger I wanted to chop off my beautiful toes.
So hard it has been to find the right shoes.
Learned young to buy the men’s shoes,
hard to feel feminine at times.
So I often wear my shoes until apart they fall.
Hating to buy new ones to suit my needs.
Payless carries my size on the shelves,
yet they but it’s disappointing when the shoes fall apart.
Flip flops are the best, but cannot
meet my work’s code of dress.
My feet have carried me through many a storm.
So often I take them for granted,
even with all of the pavement
they’ve pounded on my way
to nearly 30 finisher’s medals
in just over a year’s time.
Thank you feet, for
not giving up on me,
even when I could not
appreciate all that
you’ve done for me.
Learning to appreciate you,
regardless of your shape or your size.
taking the time to find the right shoes,
to protect you as you carry me through.
Thank you, to you I owe much gratitude,
my beautiful mismatched feet!
