Redhead Beach



Eternity is easier to comprehend
The figure represents a Life.
The footprints are human,
We know where we have been.
They are 
Our Photographs,
Our diaries,
Our treasured letters,
Our memories.
The way ahead
Stretches on,
But for how long?
Is that a brick wall way ahead
Or is the Fairy Story actually possible?
Whichever is true
We are walking towards 
The Great Change.
And, just to remind us,
The Endless Ocean is on our left;
The Universe,
The Stars,
The Riddles,
The Enormity.
If we were swept up into it
No-one would notice!
Certainly not the Universe itself!
And, to our right,
Just beyond the ridge,
Lies Everyday Life,
Filled with houses,
TV shows,
Family problems,
Hustle and bustle.
Step up and over
And forget about Eternity.
You will continue on your walk

No one's on the beach,
I have got it all by myself.
What a soothing feeling.

Do you own this strip of beach?

Lest we forget.
