to the ocean blue




i pack sand into the molds,
building sandcastles.
building walls.

the tide is too low to reach my sandcastle.
a false safety.
a prideness.

so i create walls, and i speak words.
so i watch you build your own and i laugh at you.
too close to the ocean; it will never last.
if only you were like me!

the high tide comes and sweeps me off my feet.
sweeps my pride and safety away from me.

if only i had built on promises that would last
instead of little earthly things that can be taken.

you have much to teach me.
i have much to learn.
