Wide eyed youth, out, in

running happily outside

life’s cares pushed aside


The tide is wide and

full of energy, out, in

People are tired


Adults mired in grief

the loss of so many done

before they can rest


Watch the swamp, quicksand.

Audible cries for help and

nothing to be done!


The life is full of

unsolvable problems so

the happy ending


is where? In the Tide

that is so wide, where shall I abide?

Is there not a guide?


Narrow hallways and

old age pushed in a corner

unaided, unseen


The tide is wide

full of memory, in, out,

to a life well lived.


And death will wash sand

the footprints dissapear, but

unseen they’re still there?


Butterflies flutter,

effects unknown, in, out, and

youth will always run
