The Trailblazer

The Trailblazer - Jina Wallwork
He overcame every obstacle. Impossibility has become void of all meaning, because a path has been forged by the intensity of his own personal vision. He runs through the landscape shaping it to accommodate his own journey. I watch with amazement stunned by his capacity to succeed in such a hostile environment.

There is a pathway now open and I hesitate as I consider all that I have seen. I didn't know the world could allow space for such an achievement. It shakes my understanding and I feel refreshed. The path he has opened has become crowded. They stand impatient and frustrated and it breeds hostility. There is no space to walk this path, because it belongs only to him.

I can see the fire burning within him. There is a passion that has overwhelmed any difficulties. I don’t need his path and I don’t need his fire, because I have my own. The greatest gift a trailblazer can deliver is a reminder of your own fire and the inspiration to ignite.
