Castles


I once built a castle out of sand.
I watched as the waves washed it out to sea.
It was then that I came to understand.
You can never stop what is meant to be.
We build our beliefs on fragile foundations.
Thinking we are right but never truly knowing.
We get caught up in fleeting sensations
Without paying attention where we are going
Wrapped up in the here and now
The fashion trends and reality tv
We lose sight of the future and how
Our kids learn from what they see.
We are all building sand castles and dreaming
That the waves will never reach that shore.
Content in our ignorance and political scheming
We tend to forget what we are living for.
