Your Footsteps Are the Road

Walker, your footsteps are the road, and nothing more.
Walker, there is no road, the road is made by walking.
Walking you make the road, and turning to look behind
    you see the path you never again will step upon.
Walker, there is no road, only foam trails on the sea.

~ Antonia Machado, Proverbs and Songs
(translated by Willis Barnstone)
