Steps

My soul desires a path to follow
one step at a time is all I know
vulnerable I fall and fumble
starting over, moving slow
learning that forward
means letting go.

History’s Footprints

History’s Footprints

Footprints of new
footprints of old
history follows
stories are told.

Following clues
like fossils and bones
things people wrote
things people owned.

They’re put in museums
in library stacks
taught in our schools
some are brought back.

History’s footprints
they show us the way
the way things were done
the way people played.

Everything is copied
from something before
so follow those footsteps
you’ll want to know more.
