Dear feet,

We have traveled this earth together for over fifty years. Chasing fireflies, then boys, and then children. Dancing in secret in the bedroom, then in the kitchen, always under the trees. I never made you pretty, never colored you with colorful polish. Honestly, for many years I was ashamed of you. When I looked at you, I saw my father's toes and those were too ugly to be on a girl's feet. Why couldn't I have had my mother's sweet, tiny feet? You have served me well, carrying me through  many adventures. How can I care for you now?
