A Path Made

Stepping stones o’er rough ground
Walkway for those in need
Helping them to proceed
To their path’s end

And if the way ahead
Seems one found unready
Making steps unsteady
To the path cling

Those who have gone before
The same steps they have made
And the stones they have laid
To bring you home


Colleen’s challenge this week is for the poet to choose the theme of their work. She has also introduced a new syllabic form: the abhanga. It is stanzaic, written in any number of 4 line stanzas, with a syllabic structure of 6-6-6-4 each. It also uses a rhyme scheme of x a a x , x being unrhymed. I have used the attached photo as an additional prompt.
