Two steps forward

Buen Camino!

Two steps forward,

one step back. 

We’re moving, aren’t we?

 

Let’s find out where this path

will take us. 

Step by step.

Just never take the bus. 

 

It’s not easy. 

But that’s part of it all. 

Isn’t it?

 

Let’s face this adventure

Let’s make it last. 

Are we living the moment?

Forgetting the past?

 

Two steps forward,

one step back. 

Another hill, a trail, a river. 

Evening shiver. 

 

A hot shower.

Dinner. 

Snuggling up. 

 

It’s the most basic things.

We’re caring for. 

Each other. 

 

The others.

Former strangers

Newly won friends

 

Unashamed. 

Fearless.

No make-up on. 

 

Only mascara. 

Leaving a trail. 

Of tears

 

Will there be a happy ending? 

For us?

For them?

For everyone?

 

It’s never really over. 

Is it?

The end marks a new beginning

 

Inspired by Graeme Simsion’s & Anne Buist’s novel “Two Steps Forward” as well as by my very own Camino experience. How about YOU? Is there any Camino-related reading you’d recommend?
