I was a grain of sand and I have an interesting story for you

It all began as I was on a beach along with many other grains of sand like me. Tourists walked around, enjoying the summer sun on their faces. Suddenly, a breeze carried me away from my home. the beach. I was scared for a few seconds but got over my fear , and for the first time in my life, I saw the whole beach. Miles of coastline spread out in each direction, the sea shimmered in the sunlight. I was carried away from the beautiful sight.


However, after a quarter-hour or so, I dropped into the ocean. I got very scared and sank to the bottom. Over thousands of years, layers upon layers of dust and rocks settled on top of me, and when the pressure was too much, I got turned into a huge chunk of sedimentary rock. The ocean carries me to another shoreline and I sat there, forgotten and ignored. I sunk deeper and deeper into the surface of the earth, until I reached the mantle!


Then, over millions of years I stayed in immense heat and pressure until I turned into a metamorphic rock. I was lifted into a volcano, where I was melted by the heat, and finally, the volcano erupted!!!! And for the first time in tens of millions of years, I saw the world again. I floated to another beach, where I am right now. I guess this process will repeat again and again.
