Our Shoes To Fill

Caitlin is my granddaughter she started writing poetry last year.
I am very proud to add another of her poems to my site.   The Old Cowboy poet  

Baby let's go cause I'm tired of waiting for the rain to come
Let's go to a place that doesn't care where we came from
Come on we are leaving this dusty old town behind
Cause they are all running blind
In this town they don't dig to deep
They're all satisfied with their cows and sheep
But us, well we've got bigger shoes to fill
And we are not going to get them just standing still
We'll put on our boots and we'll hop in our truck
We've got four wheel drive so we'll never get stuck
In their river of unfulfilled dreams
I can almost hear their helpless scream
They want to achieve but they don't know how
I can tell you though it's not by milking a cow
Leaving will be hard but it's for the best
We want you to fulfill our last request
Remember the girl with the duct tape on her boots
For she will always remember her roots
Remember the boy with the crooked little grin
For he will always remember the family he grow up in
So let's leave the tractors and fields in our past
While we drive down that country road a little too fast
