Footprints in the Sand
One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
Other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed
That during the low periods of my life,
When I was suffering from
Anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord,
"You promised me Lord,
That if I followed you,
You would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during
The most trying periods of my life
There have only been one
Set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
You have not been there for me?"
The Lord replied,
"The times when you have seen only one set of footprints in the sand, is when I carried you."
(*I may be one of the worst people at accepting things as they happen, and I am also horrible at asking for help, this poem serves as a nice reminder for the stubborn Taurus that I am*)
“Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart”
(*If you are lucky enough to find true friendship, hold on tight, but not too tight, all things in life need time and space. True friends indeed leave marks in our lives, most often for better, but there are times, things hit a rough road, cuts are made, scars are left, and pain ensues...if things were true to begin with, wounds will be healed, and forgiveness will be had, no one's perfect, after all*)
“One who walks in another's tracks leaves no footprints.”
(*Do not be afraid to be original, walk your own path, leave your own mark, create your own legacy, be no one else but yourself!*)
