"Don't Depend on Sand Castles"

Vast waters from the ocean
Engulf my castle walls
Valiantly they falter quickly
Many a true knight falls
Nobody falls upon their own sword
Surrender is not an option
Overwhelming in the fate
Enduring the unwilling adoption
The sands are returned to the place
From where they came to belong
Swallowed up as if into dragon's teeth
No time left for the strong
There is success in failing
Integrity is not just a myth
The waves like a juggernaut
Overcome the frail monolith
In surrender there is no shame
Valor in those who believed
The beckoning retrieves its claim
As fallen knights upon their steeds grieved
