Words in the sand

Hope, in the sand I wrote
It makes me feel better somehow
As hope could be easily created from nothing

Faith, in the sand I wrote
Even though I no longer believe
It has been just an empty word for a long time

Fear, in the sand I wrote
It doesn't have any meaning to me
After all those things I've quietly gone through

Hate, in the sand I wrote
I don't see any comfort in that
Although it dwells in my mind sometimes

Love, in the sand I wrote
Maybe I should've written pain
Or maybe I should have written your name
And let the wind carry it away from me
