Writing Prompt: Footsteps
Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.
I walk through the rain pelted land,
my footsteps following me as I go.
Seeds fallen from towering trees settle on the dirt.
My footsteps squeeze them into the soft soil.
I look back to see where I once was.
Steps from the past leave stories.
The stories are shaped by me.
I am shaped by them.
They walk on, behind me,
I am left standing inside myself,
hoping for a future not promised.
