The Flow of Life

A single grain of sand in an infinite universe of atoms
The tide breaks in and pushes around the particles
After a long confusion of floating and sinking and swirls
The sands are rearranged, and the foot prints are gone
The crests reseed back into their world of bumps
Settling into its knew life, the sand is lost
Every other grain is just like each other
The monsters come back and molest the sand one again
They are left in chagrin at the mess that was made
And the cycle starts over, but the sand just takes it
Monotony is the life of sand, with ebbing and flowing
The current muddles and mars the peaceful world
And invades it everyday with malice and contempt
The sands fall into the rut of life
And survival becomes rife with pounding waves
And everything seems to be a drudgery
