Have you ever found shoes that are just you?

I did and they are Dr. Martens....

I love them so much I had 2 pair... boots no shoe.

I have had one pair for 4 years and they are shot.

When I wanted a new pair I could not find the same kind.

I already have a pair of what they call 20 holes.

I call them my bitch boots..they are tall, oh what a find.

They are just too much some say... but hey that is me.

Today just for kicks I went in search of my Doc's.

We went to the Army Surplus shop, low and behold they had them.

I could not be any happier... I am struttin' around like a peacock.

In nothing but my shorty white gown and my brand new black Doc boots.

I love these things... "most women would not be caught in these",

that is what the young man said, well hon, "I am not your usual women".

But he said I was cool..."never have I seen a lady shop with such ease".

But hey I am just me.... don't go for shopping until I drop.

I have much better things to do with my time, poems to write and post.

So that all my friends can read and let me know... is it a winner or what?

So here's to my new found Doc's.... of my town they are the toast.

I am happy and so are my feet..... this is all it takes to make me happy.

Nice poem, Ren! I wasn't surprised to see a poem about your boots since I know how much you love them! I'm so glad you got yourself a new pair! Enjoy breaking them in!

I guess I will certainly never look at a pair of Doc Martin's the same way again. I guess the same thing goes for my old red lumberjack. It came from a friend during my first winter here in the cold of Western Ca. I know that the kids tell me that if I wear it, people think I am too poor to buy a decent coat or it means I am a "lesbian butch ?" That part I haven't figured out yet... hahahha! But, to make a long story short, to me, it represents the generosity of someone who made sure I stayed warm... Thought I would share that with ya!!! Luv ya...Amy
