I took off my shoes
And caught the train
To forget the woes
And to feel the rain

I wiggled my toes
They danced not in vain
For happiness crept my nose
And it too took part of the gain

I threw off my worries
While skipping and gliding along
I was starting to write my own stories
So to fear I said, “so long”

I was free as the air, as the clouds and the sky
To sadness I said goodbye
I was off to nowhere
And I’m glad that, that has gotten me somewhere
