Every Path

Though the world is vast, there is only the road you walk. You make your road a possible course for others. So please walk carefully along your chosen path. You cannot stay in one place over time. Stopping permits reflection, but going on permits stopping. In your search for a stopping place, don't neglect going. There is no backtracking. Every path ends.

To which I added a hardscrabble indentation many years ago:

It's the same story
just told a different way, and with a different ending.
Point A to point B
hardship, struggle, obstacles,
and the passage of time.
Joy, sadness, tears, smiles
in the end, it's all the same story.
