Footprint By Jasen Sousa


It’s winter now and the world is frozen.
Icicles remind me of tears unable to fall to the ground.
Peers who had their fate chosen, the gates to Heaven are quickly closing,
the echo of fallen friends makes a stirring sound.
Shovel out sorrow and make a path for joy,
things come into focus as we grow older,
back to innocence as a little girl or boy,
my heart grows colder.
Rushing out the door, on my way,
equipped with all my belongings, I don’t know how long I’ll be,
no one wants to listen, I have nothing left to say,
traveling through a blizzard, I can barely see.
A footprint left in the snow,
follow its path, it will show you where to go.
