G-D bless your cotton socks

By:Ashlee Zlotnick

As your body shivers
and your teeth chatter.
So that we don’t sit and mock
to warm yourself up, you out in cotton socks.

You feel unsafe
and vulnerable.
To hide the scares
you put on your cotton socks.

Your fear takes over
as you walk into the room.
Your toes scringe in your shoes
and your cotton socks fill up the gaps.

This disease has taken over your body
as the incurable cancer spreads daily.
Your socks have been there to protect you
and you are in them so…

G-D bless your cotton socks.
