Wanderer, the road is your footsteps

Wanderer, the road is your
footsteps, nothing else;
wanderer, there is no path,
you lay down a path in walking.

In walking, you lay down a path
and when turning around
you see the road you’ll
never step on again.
Wanderer, path there is none,
only tracks in the ocean foam.

Antonio Machado (translated by Franciso Valera)
