Footsteps

It wasn’t there when I came
Every message specifically proclaimed
To be assimilated into or immersed in
Guiding my path into foreseen wisdom

None before
Naught behind

Every attempt must be a mystery
To be fruitful or calamitous
Confirming to any stereotypical identity
More of a ball and chain tossed into an ocean of safety nets

None defined
Naught inclined
