Grains Of Sand


As grains of sand tossed to the wind
are the souls of the earth.
The brightness of their caliber will
depend on there self worth.

As grains of sand in an hourglass
each has its place underneath
the stars, though no plan did one
give for guidance to follow.

Destiny being our fate, those that
were tossed about fervently are
blessed, those dimly lit are to fight
life’s battles seemingly alone.

Growth and change depend on the
individual, limited vision is
our own design, aiming for the stars
our only choice.

Given choice still does not mean the
soul posses the strength to proceed,
or to endure that which destiny has lay
before us.

Wisdom taken deep within will give
brightness to a dimly lit path,
choice was granted but no basis for a  
Foundation was laid.

Choice then being our own to proceed
with caution  our aim, we strive
towards our desired destiny, hopefully
graced with brightly lit paths.

An interesting poem on choice and destiny

I like the image of the grains of sand  

 "Love is the only drug you can take that will convince you each time
that you've never had it before."

Cerenity~
I was reminded of these words as I read your poem .... which is very wisely done.

'To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wildflower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.'
                          William Blake

Peace and hugs.
