Wow this is a powerful piece. Are there even thousand dollar tennis shoes. I'm blissfully naive in many ways. I can't ever imagine spending that much money on shoes and though in the US I'd be considered on the fringes of poverty I have way more than the majority of the world. It is time to open my eyes and to act. Your words inspired me.

Very thought-provoking material that shouts down any sense of gratitude for what we have and all that we can share with others - until that last little request. Very well done.
I am not a great poetry reader, though I have written simple ones myself;but I picked up the meter in this one and that made it enjoyable. Pertinent message too.
