My Own Path

Footsteps in the sand
walking away from me.
Do I follow the path
that has been laid out
so clearly,
or do I make my own
Do I dare to wish
upon a star
and lead the life
that fate gives to me?
Stumbling and falling
without dignity.
Do I fear what others think?
Build my life around
or do I wander a path
with no constraints
and live my life
Footsteps in the sand,
the safe path laid out
I turn left
and begin my own
