Sand

Will the shores keep me with them,
Or the water carry me along,
To dump me at another shore,
When I crumble down into sand?
Will the child make a castle,
Or throw me into her eyes,
Angry that she was fake,
When I crumble down into sand?
A house of me, where crabs would stay,
Or one which is kicked by the dog,
Will the sun cool me at noon,
When I crumble down into sand?
When at night the cold wind blows,
Will it take me to the cloud with it,
Or mix me with itself and confuse my paths,
When I crumble down into sand?
Will I have my money with me,
Or my car and the house I live,
Will my love still hate me,
When I crumble down into sand?
Will I speak then for myself,
And for others who have turned down,
Will a stir in me frighten the rich,
When I crumble down into sand?
Nothing is forever, all’s fake,
I will rise tomorrow if I fall today,
And to a newer height I will reach in my next life,
After I crumble down into sand.
