Some I’d Rather (k)not

I knot my laces twice so they don’t come untied
I feel like a child but it saves my pride
When I walk a straight path and not fall down
Cause I stepped on threads dangling loose on the ground
Others knots I wrestle

Dversepoets.com Quadrille Monday. Exactly 44 words excluding the title the word is knot. I could have gone on and on, but the word count stopped me. So I cut it off and tied a knot.

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    After reading this it occurred to me none of my shoes anymore have laces. There are either Velcro straps or slip on shoes. But I can see how it would make sense to double tie them.

    Very wise; I could especially resonate with the first few lines and I love how you tied it all together (hehe). Another brilliant piece!

    I do the same and if only the other knots of life were as easy to entangle! The ending of your poem is such a nice surprise…taking the literal into the metaphorical.
