Our footprints

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.

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (www.rianplacements.com), by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
