Footsteps Yet Taken

I remember those years,

the frightening uncertainty

of the future.

Who am I?

What am I destined

to become?

Feeling alone despite

the sea of loved ones

surrounding me with

encouraging words.

Your path will take you

to unfamiliar shores,

up winding, and sometimes

perilous, paths.

But you will reach

the first destination

and every place that follows.

Your path was written

in the stars, in your DNA,

and even in the most

secret places of your heart.
