Footprints in the Sand

I am not a believer of these things
But yesterday I couldn’t help but smile
With each footprint in the sand
Another memory put off to file

I just want to believe I can be me
And that people can hold a stake
Toward the genuine, as well as the fake

We’re not supposed to all be the same 

Cause in a world filled with so many faces
Why do so many strive to be so alike
It’s a breath of fresh air to see a change
The repeat of casual, the loss of a name

It’s somewhere in between, someone needs to tell a story
That will strive to make people find and be that change

So put your hand in mind; seek a dare
Cause we can all afford to be different
The unique blend of the real and pretend
Will be the linked ribbon from one heart to another

The valued recipe that makes personality
With the unlisted special ingredient that is you
And by you, I mean what makes us different

What’s different is beautiful; it’s never the same
Its the difference that stands out; the opposite from the plain

So with each print in the sand; and each rift in the wind
Take life’s roulette; hold it close
And give it some force, give a gentle spin
Let fate have a chance to unwind on its own

Tomorrow may not be exactly as you plan
But a focused mind will find its way
It’s the knowledge of effort that will count in the end
And the knowledge of knowing that with time

You can make anything yours
