Questions??

The cloak of darkness

Has fallen upon

Us, or is it me?

Nooo

It’s just some of us

So someone tell me

Please…

Why are you the chosen

Ones…

Of the few?

On the dirt?

I’m here too!

On Mother Earth

Exactly…

As you

Why am I

Of the darkness

In an endless plight?

Caught in the loop going

Nowhere…

A one of a kind

Unsuspected journey

Of a decaying

Mind…

And, you

Please tell me

Are in light?

Despair

4 Comments

There’s a heat wave in the desert

A thirst longing to be quenched

My lips are cracked, I won’t look back

I’m burning in the sand

I can no longer feel my feet

They are blistered on this land

I carry on my back, the sand of my despair

It’s a heavy load and burden

I know it must be done

I close my burning eyes, and pray

Oh Lord, please come to me

This lonely walk across this land

Has imprisoned me

I kneel to Thee, I know you see

I’m burning in the sand
