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. Stunned by his capacity to succeed in such a hostile environment, I watch with amazement.

There is a pathway now open, and I hesitate as I consider all that I’ve 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 created has now become crowded. They stand impatiently, and their frustration 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, or his fire, because I have my own. The greatest gift a trailblazer can deliver is a reminder of one’s own fire and the inspiration to ignite.
