Footprint in the sand

 

There are moments when we feel big

 

And there are moments when we feel small

 

Small, not because we did not achieve anything

 

But because even when we achieved something

 

If we were able to build a life

 

Live it

 

And succeed in it

 

In the end it doesn’t matter

 

When we look beyond what our eyes can see

 

 

Some may think that I am here to boast about what I have done

 

I know it is just a drop in the ocean

 

 

Many have done more

 

And more intensely that I have done or will do

 

And many that will come after me

 

Will do more and live more than I will do in this lifetime

 

But again it does not matter

 

 

So you may ask

 

What does matter

 

 

We are finite beings in this world

 

We are destined to live and to die

 

And our footprint in the sand will not last long

 

And even if it did

 

When they look at it

 

They will never know the man who planted it

 

Or why that step was taken

 

 

That step will only matter to you

 

As you are the one who planted it on the floor

 

The reasons you did it is yours alone

 

And whatever benefit you get out of doing it

 

Is only yours to claim if you want

 

 

I never said that any step you take should be towards me

 

My goal is and always will be

 

That you find fulfillment in doing it

 

 

That you find your happiness at the end of your journey

 

With or without me at your side

 

But that the knowledge that I have imparted to you

 

Has made you stronger and more committed

 

To that step you have set for yourself

 

So that you can achieve it with pride

 

 

That you can cherish those memories that were shared

 

And use them to give you the strength when you most need it

 

 

 

That step

 

Big or small

 

Doesn’t matter

 

 

 

What matters is

 

You

 

 

 

Find your happiness while you can

 

As this world will not wait for you

 

 

 

My prayers to those who will have to fight in this battle

 

My prayers to those who will lose this fight

 

My prayers to those who will have to remember those who have been lost
