Yes.

Wanderer, your footsteps are
the road, and nothing more;
wanderer, there is no road,
the road is made by walking.
By walking one makes the road,
and upon glancing back
one sees the path
that never will be trod again.
Wanderer, there is no road–
Only wakes upon the sea.

– Antonio Machado

    Nice. I like the three ways he puts it: your footsteps are the road … the road is made by walking … only wakes upon the sea

    This is one of those poems I wouldn’t mind keeping with me forever.
