U-Turn

At one point in time

I decided to trace my footsteps

Checking where the prints would lead me

The first few steps draw me a straight line


I continued

Arduously, my feet conquered the fatigue

Following the curve bend

Hoping that it will lead me farther away


The final gallop still

was a straight line

parallel to the first path I took

I can even see the other me walking on the other side


I reach the end

The end which was just the same as where I started

Same place with just a little distance

from where I came from


Yes, I peregrinated miles and miles

my sweat soaking my tired body

But it was a u-turn

And I can still see you on the other side.
