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! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

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


  2. when we kill the world, there will be no trace of us i suspect


  3. Hmm, makes one wonder, Sidey. Nothing is made to last any more, is it? Will our world simply bio-degrade?


  4. Love this … plain, simple and oh, so true


  5. Unfortunately very true, adee!


  6. We are definitely leaving our “footprints” on the world. Too bad it’s not like a blackboard where we could wipe the slate clean and start over more sustainably.

  8. You really could make a living by having artists do these up and frame them for people to hang in their homes 🙂 This was short but so true… 🙂


  9. Wonderful little snatch: we all leave a trace.


    • Well, when future civilizations arise out of the ashes I hope they learn from our failures to make a success of living life on this earth as it was meant to be.


  10. true that…simple but surely condemning in many ways…good stuff adee…


  11. We sure will. Hopefully, our footprints will have the best kind of story to tell about us… 🙂


  12. Thanks for this concise summary, Denise.
    It inspired me to write mine. Thank God that he keeps on shepherding His creation through all of this.

  14. Very succinct, very moving, very spot on. I wonder how we will be judged in the end….


    • 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?
