The Importance of That Extra Hole

There's a confusing part to every shoe

That extra hole the lace goes through

I find that hole to be extra pleasant

When I'm running in the present

That hole is important to me

As I run free

Past all the places I want to see

Throughout the hills of rural Germany


Instead of taking the rail

I stick to the trail

With the dirt below my feet

Nature couldn't feel more sweet

The hole keeps my feet in place

Giving me a speedy pace

As I feel the wind across my face

Grateful for its tight embrace


This hole means the most to me

Because it keeps me blister free
