Who tracks our footsteps, I wonder?
We who are the forgotten, the discounted and the ignored.
When the path is failure, it is never willingly taken.
Why does my heart weep for them?
Not them but us, for most assuredly I am counted among them.
Slaves, serfs, nameless peasants and labourers,
the blurred faces in the crowd—just a smear on memory, a scuffing of feet down the side passages of history."
