Poem: "Building Sandcastles in the Rain"

This poem came out of the March 1, 2016 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired and sponsored by Shirley Barrette.

"Building Sandcastles in the Rain"

Sometimes trying to make
the world a better place is like
building sandcastles in the rain.

You can spend your life
setting up a better future
for your children, only to see
the next generation wash it away.

But take heart:

there is no way
to build sandcastles
without water, and

no matter what happens

the sand and the water
will still be there for

the next generation of builders.
