I Set My Foot Upon a Path

Credit: Frank Brinkman
There is a far off mountain top we each strive for. Each step an adventure in dreams and reality. Each step brings us nearer to our karma.

I set my foot upon a path, sometime, everytime, one step at a time to reach my karma.

I set my foot upon my path,
Sometimes knowing it is a beginning,
Sometimes knowing the end draws nigh.

I set my foot upon a path,
Sometimes running, other times walking
Sometimes I stop to gather wool or ponder.

I set my foot upon my path,
Sometimes alone,
Sometimes together.

I set my foot upon the path,
Sometimes the way is known,
Sometimes the way unclear or I am lost.

I set my foot upon a path,
Sometimes with trepidation,
Sometimes with eagerness.

I set my foot upon your path,
Sometimes, but rarely in anger,
Sometimes, but always with love,

I set my foot upon my path,
Sometimes to create,
Sometimes to exist, even survive.

I set my foot upon the path,
Sometimes following others,
Sometimes leading others.

This is a reflection on life and the paths we take in life. It could be a reflection on my life, and possibly yours. I look back and I am pleased with whom I have become. It may have been luck. It may have been destiny, which I seriously doubt. It may have been happenstance. I am thankful for the friends and family that have helped along the way. I am overwhelmed by the love freely given and the many acts of forgiveness I have received along the path.
