On My Walk

Feet treading
Again and again
On The Way

My companion
Faithful friend
Together we go
Your Path meets You
Upon Your every step

On My Walk
I watch my feet
In grateful wonder
For I see so many feet
Echoes persisting
Of those have gone before

Images phasing
In a series
An endless succession
A line singlefile
The Chain of Life

And Me, a link
Birthed as inheritor
Encoded in my biology
Expressing in my mind
Voice of My Ancestors
An anchor in time

I hear their memories
Urging Me
I know their stories
Written in mine

My Responsibilities
Come to Me
Settling on my chest
For all my steps
Have never been mine
They have been my gifts.
