My shoes

I leave aside my shoes – my ambitions,
undo my watch – my timetable,
take off glasses – my views,
unclip my pen – my work,
put down my keys – my security,
to be alone with you, the only true God.

After being with you,
I take up my shoes – to walk in your ways,
strap on my watch – to live in your time,
put on my glasses – to look at your world,
clip on my pen – to write up your thoughts,
pick up my keys – to open up your doors.
