Vestigia Nulla Retrorsum*

(*Footprints do not go backwards)

My eyes rest forward

settling on a limitless 

horizon immense before me;

I’ve stumbled and crawled–

my knees buckled — fallen 

flat-out — my face to dirt —

and defiantly laid myself 

down idle by the wayside,

just watching the world 

pass by, but in the stillness 

resides patience, the Eternal

awaits, His voice continues —

a gentle, persistent call — 

so I continue on the narrow 

path, following the footprints 

of God.
