Sidey’s Weekend Theme: 30.09.2011 – Footprints

When we’ve turned the world to dust,

Trampled the life beneath our feet,

We will be judged in history

By our footprints, plain to see.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

  1. Yet, the sands of time,
    may swirl and drift,
    and our footprint gone,
    maybe God’s gift.

    • I just wonder, is humankind going to exit this world with a bang or a whimper? Or will something happen (cosmic event) to wake up ‘the powers that be’ to reality?
