Gold Beach


The sea has tried its hardest

to wash this beach clean,

countless times over countless years.

Yet no matter how many waves

hit this shore or

how many times the tide

advances and retreats,

there are memories here

that cannot be washed away.

For when heroes’ blood is spilled

their sacrifice becomes

engrained like DNA

into the very cliff face rocks

and every single grain of sand.

So the memories here

could never be washed away,

no matter how long and hard

the persistent ocean tries.
