I was a pilgrim of a distant dream
that could never be reached;
casting my shadow in front
I left the sunrise behind,
and went on to make the road
that aimlessly led beyond
the horizons I was taught.
I never learned to follow
and they said I’d get lost,
dictated distance and goal
ignoring that my guiding post
was the purpose of my soul.
A square foot I was given
and a square foot is all I needed
to project my inner self
upon the canvas of this earth;
with every step and in every act
I radiated my love
to heal the small piece of land
my two feet occupied.
Natural seeds of paradise
with every footmark multiplied,
because everything around me
is the consequence of who I am,
where they put a lion I placed a lamb;
where fear raised crosses I saw a man.
Despite distance, land or shore
this world is the mirror of my soul,
that is why to regret any step
is to miss the point,
following the sun no flower can disappoint.
I chose the virtue and dignity of a path
where I am you, you’re him and he’s us,
a trail of freedom that bounds no one,
expects no one to follow but all to lead
projecting their inner happiness and peace.
I no longer am a pilgrim of a distant dream,
my life is now a sign-less road,
ignoring where I am going
everywhere I am, I make my home.
While this plane is a globe
I am always returning regardless where I go,
everywhere I am I’ve been before,
because I am in all things and everything is in me;
that is how I learned that the dream I set out to reach,
everywhere I went I brought it within me.
