Ephemeral

images

The first of 5-10 pairs I owned.

Is it because I got bored of the flashing lights and pink sparkles? Is it because I didn’t want shoes with hearts and stars on them anymore?

No.

It’s because as a child, nothing is permanent. Nothing is constant.

Like the light up velcro sneakers that flash with each energetic step we took, our childhood speeds by us before we have a chance to notice it’s changing.

One day my mom bought me a pair of shoes and two months later, she needs to get a pair that actually fits.

Because while the world around us stays still, we are always changing. We are always growing. We are never stagnant.

We are ephemeral.
