In this transient world, our lives are like footprints in the sand
That are washed away, that vanish into the lap of the next wave.
In this world of impermanence, we struggle to steady our hand
We strive to accumulate, to amass more than what God gave.
But we forget that we live in a world that is always in a flux.
It is moved by an invisible hand that keeps us in motion.
Yes! This constant movement defines our lives, it is the Crux,
Just like the Earth that we call home does its solar rotation.
The earth answers to the call of her father, her mentor; the sun;
Same as we too answer to the call of an unseen force
That prods us on, that keeps egging us and keeps us on the run.
That force is from where we, our avarice do source.
So human’s let’s strive, all of us together, to leave a footprint
Let’s work, all of us together, to create a lasting imprint.
