You Can Only See


You can only see exactly where you’re going
When you can see exactly where you’ve been, then knowing
Where you got off track – were only spinning your wheels –
So you can become aware of and thus avoid such futile deals.

I cannot draw you a road map nor even can your brother,
For, though our paths are forever crossing each other’s,
We all have our own brochure of travel plans
Tucked away in our timeless soul directing us through this land.
