The Road

I follow the footsteps
of those who went before me,

they lead me to
where I have to be.

I trace their footprints
with my own

to try to find the wisdom
that they have sown.

The road to follow
is both steep and long

with many a turn
that will set you wrong.

To choose the right one
it must be clear

that you can only pass
without any sign of fear.

Depression falls like a fog
to hide the way

and would be grateful
for you to stay.

Do not rush,
you will be fine,

for everyone knows,
fog lifts with time.
