"Footprints in the Sand"

By Christian Taylor

 

Life in hindsight,

Mistakes and lessons. 

Nothing lasts forever, 

Neither does you or I. 

Invincible,

We are not. 

Actions speak louder than words,

Words speak volumes.

Footprints we leave behind,

Tell a life story.

 

Choices we have, 

Outcomes unpredictable. 

Choose wisely,

For one shot is one shot. 

Accomplishments, 

Mistakes, 

Come hand in hand. 

Face your fears, 

Not your life. 

Step by step, 

Learn every mistake, 

Every lesson, 

And every opportunity. 

 

People come and go, 

Right or wrong, 

Meet for a reason.

Till our dying breath, 

Live for you. 

Live for acceptance. 

Live for prosperity.

For the graveyard, 

Is where lives gather to remember, 

A journey no longer with them. 

A journey with memories. 

A journey that came to an end.

 

Footprints we leave behind, 

Tell a story. 

Make it worth the read.
