Like the only grain of sand

In a whole vast desert.

Life, is but a fleeting moment,

In a universe of passing time.

Therefore man, is less than a grain of sand

In the desert of infinite space.

In the everyday language, of life, a mean's to an end,

Unless properly applied and felt, from the Heart!
