untested pathsuntested paths obscured by snow

Itโ€™s clear to see from the impressions in the snow

That you were walking in someone elseโ€™s footsteps,

Wearing someone elseโ€™s shoes.

Maybe because it was easier to take steps already taken

Or maybe because of outside expectations that were not your own.

It doesnโ€™t matter.

Now, here, looking back, aware,

You can decide.

If you wish to continue in this fashion

Or if the time has come for you to forge your own untested path.
