We see only that which is behind us
and occasionally, if we’re aware,
we see that which surrounds us as we are now.
So we walk forward,
We have eyes on the back of our minds
and on the soles of our feet
but this does not help us move forward.
So then, what senses must we use
to guide us on our path?
For if all we can see is what’s behind
(remnants of what was)
then we are not meant to see what’s ahead
