A sand castle


I once lived in a castle of sand
It was beautiful and grand
Everything was built in perfection
We received the best protection

Everybody looked at it in admiration
The children had a “perfect” education
Layers of sand was a solid foundation
All was my own creation

I lived in this perfect illusion
Looking back I come to the conclusion
The tides of the sea played a role
Slowly things went out of control

Our castle disappeared in the sea
The only thing left was little me
I walked away in disarray
Looking for a new way

I found a construction of concrete
A simple life walking on bare feet
Enjoying life in perfect simplicity
Living in my own new reality
