Footprints Of Laetoli


Starting out with just a dream

An idea as seen from Afar

To make you life have meaning

To reach a distant star


Life too short and precious

To spend it foolishly

You wanted footprints left behind

Like those of Laetoli


Eyes transfixed upon that goal

Applying self without pause

An exercise in dedication

Obsession with just a cause


Sacrifice today for tomorrow

To build life as it should be

All with admire the footprints

Like those of Laetoli


With then thousand yesterdays

Nothing to show but the strife

All those dreams have blown away

Sentenced to live out your life


Gains at the whim of fate

Some will and will not be

Most accidents of nature

Like the footprints of Laetoli
