Grains Of Sand.... - Poem by DEEP DARK SOUL POET

I realised a tease
The tighter you squeeze
The grains of sand
The more of them
Slip through your hand

No matter how tight
Your fist makes a fight
They just drain right out
Just like a misty stream
All glisteni​ng​ and gleam

There​'s​ just so many
Tiny grains of sand
That will ever fit inside
The palm of your hand
The gesture so grand

Loose​n​ the grip and relent
And be quite content
With what you got,
If you stop and look
You'll find It's quite a lot....
