wake upon the sea

Wanderer, your footsteps are
the road, and nothing more;
wanderer, there is no road,
the road is made by walking.

By walking on makes the road,
and upon glancing behind
one sees the path
that will never be trod again.

Wanderer, there is no road —
only wakes upon the sea.

Antonio Machado
