Footprints in the Sand- Waiting for son to SLEEP

Updated on April 15, 2013

Title: Footprints in the Sand

I am not a believer of these things

But yesterday I couldn't help but smile

With each footprint in the sand

Came a tale and a story I could tell another

I just wanted to believe I could be me

And people could see the genuine from the fake

Cause in a world filled with so many faces

Why do so many strive to be so alike

It's a breath of fresh air to see a change

Cause the repeat of casual needs a new name

And somewhere between we need someone to tell a story

That will strive to make people find and be that change

So put your hand in mind; seek a dare

Cause we can all afford to be different

The unique blend of the real and pretend

Will be the linked ribbon from one heart to another

The valued recipe that makes personality

With the unlisted special ingredient that is you

And by you I mean what makes you different

What's different is beautiful; it's never the same

Its the difference that stands out; opposite from the plain

It what takes a place in our memory; and makes us look back

Cause it's what makes looking back so exciting

So with each print in the sand; and each rift in the wind

Take life's roulette; hold it close

And give it some force with a gentle spin

Tomorrow may not be exactly as you plan

But with the proper force behind it you can guide it along the way

It's the knowing that you tried that counts

And the knowledge that with time you can make anything yours.

      Well said!... we live in a time when it is almost a sin to be different, yet; it is our individuality that makes us the unique beings that we are. Probably why so many of us are unhappy, someone once said "the reward for conformity is that everyone likes you except yourself."

      Nice work.
