I took the pathway, the one I least expected to take.
The one leading where no one had gone.
Where it goes, I do not know.
Will it take me where I want to go?
It leads, and I follow. Guide me into ancient pathways and bygone roads.
Guide me where I need to go.
This old way, it calls to me. How many have been this way before?
Whose footsteps do I walk upon?
Take me not where I want, but where you lead. Show me what you need me to see.
Reveal what’s hidden beyond my sight, at the point where all paths end.
To the place my ancestors now tread, which awaits all who venture down the pathway.
The one I least expected to take.
