Sand Castle

Susan was building a sand castle
by the water side.
A castle where she herself will reign
where there will be no need to hide.

She was molding the place
She wished she knew.
The place she saw with closed eyes
the place she wished to be true.

She took sand
and built the final tower.
Oh, what a kingdom that would be
where unity will be the only power.

Then the tide came
and washed the castle away.
It washed away all the sand
and all the molded clay.

The tide was so high 
that it washed Susan too.
Her sand covered hands
and fingers too.

Now you can't see a castle
just plain flat land.
And nobody looking at Susan
could tell that she ever played with the sand.
