Maybe everything about nature does have a reason, and a lesson to teach us something nice or something bitter?
The salt wave gushed to the land,
Washing away my footprints on sand.
I was then too naïve to understand
The reasons it had.
I stood safe when the second lap came,
Feet firm on the ground that I wanted to claim.
The swell engulfed around my feet and slacked.
I saw my footprints ingrain.
Now I’m a grown man with his feelings grown,
Who feels and lives on for his own,
For the betrayal and infidelity his heart has bore
With weak fond prolonged.
The sand and water and footprints, I surmise,
Were to illuminate to me the knowledge of life
To give up things meant to fall apart
And I decipher it all – my fault
