Sand Castle

I worked hard to build
This lovely sand castle.
I bring visitors through
The well-kept courtyard.

The back room collapsed
A little while ago.
It shocked me at first
I thought this was sturdy.

The fallen sands reveal
An infinite ocean closing in.
The waves collect anything
Lying in its path.

I’ve worked so hard
On this crumbling sand castle.
What will others say
When the courtyard is taken?

A wave hits my window,
Filling the floor with cold ocean.
I lost my breath and stood frozen
Could not deny what I saw.

I’ve no need for this castle
The sea is my true home.
It was there all along,
Just waiting to be seen.
