Vanishing Point

Look far enough down any road
you will see the vanishing point.
The road continues but
is unseeable. unknowable.
Until you take a step or two
towards that distant point.
With each step you take
the vanishing point also
moves one step
The vanishing point is always there
but willing to yield its mysteries
one step at a time.
We plan and predict and guess
what the future may hold, but
can only see so far
and we can only wonder
what is beyond the vanishing point?
and can only know, moment by moment
as we take our steps
cautious or bold
into the future
