In how many
footsteps do I follow?

This path,
this human path
is worn so deep
you would think
it impossible to stray
but so many of us do.

I for one.

Perhaps by
doing so we make
the path a little wider
for those who come after,
or perhaps we are just fools.

The path itself may be ancient
but each soul who walks it
walks it anew.
