Antonio Machado: “Wayfarer”

Wayfarer

Wayfarer, all that is
are your footprints, the road,
and nothing more.

Wayfarer, there is no way.
A path is made by walking it.
By being walked, it becomes a path.
By looking back, you become aware
of all that you will never walk again.

Wayfarer, there is no way,
only the wake of a raging sea.

Antonio Machado
