The consequences of haste

Pay attention to the dust that you kick up
in your haste to meet your goal
(however noble or refined):
will it enrich the soil you leave behind
or make the air impossible to breathe?
Are you laying down a path for those who follow,
or tearing up the road so they'll stumble, 
 trip, and fall, then lose their way?
