The hidden power of a single grain of sand
I Am A Grain Of Sand

I am a grain of sand, one of many here.
I have been here since the beginning of time, and I will be here when the last breath is drawn.
I have felt the footsteps of children and old men; of kings and fools alike.
Horses hooves have trod me, men have died upon me, many lovers have spilled their secrets upon my skin.

I have tasted the salt of the ocean, the sweat of man, the flora of the sea.
I have been a child’s toy, a sunbather’s resting place; my bed holds many treasures.

I am a grain of sand. I have been here, and I will remain.
