From standing still

If you ask which road I’m travelling -

I don’t know, for there are few signs for me;
there are no skills that will serve me best
when all can serve me well:

perhaps I’m looking for the skill that nobody has?
What will be needed when the time has arrived
will only be known from the ways I have travelled.

Maybe the skill that nobody has is the skill that
always has been, yet needs the road ahead
to make it known: whatever, nothing

was ever gained from standing still.
