Footprints - Poem by Mawunyo Adjei

There lied so many footprints along my journey
Initially, I saw so many of them but, as I walked on
I realized some were fading away whiles others
were no more
I noticed a set of footprints facing a specific direction
As though it bearer had a thousand legs
Could it be a crowd of people?
The footprints were headed towards a place where
there were trees with low hanging fruits, so they
veered off the road
I noticed other footprints which were not full as though
it bearers had tip toed throughout the journey to avoid
bruises from the sharp stones
Then I noticed a rare footprint with little blood stains in it
The wind blew and it never fade, time passed and it could
never be written off
I realized other fresher footprints had steps drawn in the
old rare footprints
Immediately, I knew which step to follow and with that I
became a marvel to the on-lookers
