Castles in the Sand

You and I were doomed to be
building castles in the sand,
watch the waves come crashing in
destroying them no matter how grand.
Sometime they had windows
so we could watch the sky, 
sometimes they had towers
and if we jumped we could fly.
But, make a castle out of sand
know that easily it could crumble
without a mote to protect it 
from the waves who roar and rumble
that want to take this castle down
like a heart that is made of glass
picked up and thrown to the floor
it’s hard to survive such a crash.
You and I were doomed to be
making castles in the sand
but why can’t we travel farther
from the sea to build on firmer land?
