My Family Is A Shoe

My Family Is A Shoe

By Daniel Hunter Chrysler (11 Years Old)

My Mom is the leather cut like paper.

My sister is the laces tied into hopeless knots.

I am the tongue, ripped clean off in despair.

Biographical Info... What you seek is my Story. Every Soul is a "Blurb" as one would read on the back of the book. But can people be "unwrapped" so easily? Most importantly, why try? I have long since learned to preserve the Savory that comes with Discovery. Learning of another Soul is a Journey. It is an Exploration. And it does not do the Soul Justice to try and condense a Soul Journey into a Bio.
