English term or phrase: Wanderer there is no path/way
I'm a Spanish speaker and I would like to translate this sentence which is an extract from a well-known Spanish poem. I'm asking in English because I guess there are more possibilities to find an English-Lithuanian translator rather than an Spanish-Lithuanian one. The English version of this poem could be something like this:
Wanderer, the only way
is your footsteps, there is no other.
Wanderer, there is no way,
you make the way as you go.
As you go, you make the way
and stopping to look behind,
you see the path that your feet
will never travel again.

Any idea? Thank you!!!

Lithuanian translation:Klajūne, tako/kelio nėra
Explanation:
... klajodamas prasiskini jį pats.

(Interesting. Could it be like this?

Klajūne, vienintelis takas -
Tai tavo pėdos, kito nėra.
Klajūne, tako nėra -
Klajodamas prasiskini jį pats.
Eidamas prasiskini taką,
Sustojęs žvilgteri atgal -
Ir matai kelią, kuriuo tavo pėdos
Niekad nebežengs.)

Wanderer - klajūnas
path/way - takas/kelias
there is no - nėra
