The  Path – Jina Wallwork

 

This path is made of concrete rules that tell me where to walk. I’m encouraged to follow the direction that is presented before me. To step forward is to avoid questioning my own desires and motivations. I glance into the wilderness, and I know that I may become lost within its shadows. Does every road need to be tested by the feet of another before I make my move? If I follow these footsteps, I will cease to learn about myself. Instead, I will learn only about the person who originally took this journey. I will learn of their dreams and motivations while losing sight of my own. The grass seems inviting. There is no promise of security, only adventure. If I choose my own direction, I will discover my hidden depths.
