The Trail

The Trail

As I walked the trail,
I also noticed that
I have created my own trail for
as I walked onward,
I also walked inward.
This process cannot
just be accessed by understanding.

It is only through vulnerability, humility and reverence.

    Love this part: “as I walked onward, / I also walked inward.” So much meaning in just those few words. Amazing work.

  2. Nice poem, Virgilio! I see you are also transiting paths these days!
