Erasing my steps

I walked on the beach…the shores washing my feet…
I walked a mile, along the shore…

The path that I walked, I wanted everyone to see….
My head held high, my footprints so deep…

I thought let me retrace, my achievements of the hour…
I turn around.. Alas!! The waves had washed away my dreams…

I stood in the rain, lamenting my fate…
tears from my eyes.. realization in my mind…

Everything I do, is insignificant after a time…
I should have aimed for contentment, when I had the chance..

Its too late now… To give up on what I have started..
Against the nature, I started walking..

I tread hard on the sand… My footprints deeper than ever..
This time though.. my walk shall be remembered..

All along, laughing behind my back – the rain and sea started what they’ve been doing for years..

…………………………………………………………………………..

“Don’t fight us my child, for we mean no harm…
We strive to erase not your achievements of the past..
The sorrows, the mistakes, the tears – aren’t achievements..
To give you a clean slate every time.. is what we desire ”
