Sand And Maya Angelou

Two Friends Were Walking
Through The Desert.
During Some Point Of The
Journey, They Had An
Argument; And One Friend
Slapped The Other One
In The Face.

The One Who Got Slapped
Was Hurt, But Without
Saying Anything,
Wrote In The Sand:

Today My Best Friend
Slapped Me In The Face.

They Kept On Walking,
Until They Found An Oasis,
Where They Decided
To Take A Bath
The One Who Had Been
Slapped Got Stuck In The
Mire And Started Drowning,
But The Friend Saved Him.

After He Recovered From
The Near Drowning,
He Wrote On A Stone:

"today My Best Friend
Saved My Life ".

The Friend Who Had Slapped
And Saved His Best Friend
Asked Him, "after I Hurt You,
You Wrote In The Sand And Now,
You Write On A Stone, Why?"

The Friend Replied
"when Someone Hurts Us
We Should Write It Down
In Sand, Where Winds Of
Forgiveness Can Erase It Away.
But, When Someone Does
Something Good For Us,
We Must Engrave It In Stone
Where No Wind
Can Ever Erase It."

Learn To Write
Your Hurts In
The Sand And To
Carve Your
Benefits In Stone.

They Say It Takes A
Minute To Find A Special
Person, An Hour To
Appreciate Them, A Day
To Love Them, But Then
An Entire Life
To Forget Them.

A beautiful philosophy. Wouldn't it be nice if everyone could live that way?
