My Tiny Trail

Today I am reaching deep into the archives for this poem, written way back in middle school:


I make a tiny trail in the vastness of eternity

Like the tracks of the sandpiper in the sand beside the sea.

The tides of people will come in and wash my tracks away.

And all I ask of you, my friend, is why can’t my tracks stay.


I don’t remember exactly the year I wrote this poem.  I do remember that my cousin–also in middle school at the time–commented upon reading it, “Everybody thinks that.  You wrote it.”


Who wouldn’t want to become a writer after a comment like that?  Thanks to all my readers, who make it matter.
