Footsteps in the sand of life
Omnipotent from danger
One set from your own steps
The other from a stranger
Sometimes though one foot set stops
The other perseveres
Estranged to Him in darkness
Proceeding on with prayers
So why do you forsake me

In the time I need a friend?
Not knowing who to turn to since

The tracks beside me end
He looks at me and smiles
Even though you met with harm

Someone was there to guide you
And to hold you in his arms
No one walks alone on life's beach that we live through
Do not be afraid for I will always carry you

I may be stupid but at least I'm not handsome.

Thanks very much for the praise guys, it certainly means a lot coming from two of the best. I was actually told the story of 'Footsteps' from a friend but was unsure of it's origins. I stuck pretty much to what he told me minus a few 'f' words. The thing I like most about the story is the ambivilence of 'He'. 'He' can be anyone or anything not necessarily a god. I guess it's just nice to know that hopefully there's someone there you can call a friend when things get a little rough.

nice well done but
your poem captures the writer from the onset of reading it you had a way with words with it just that it was brief and uneven in stanzas.Nice job though
