I wander an emotional wasteland,
my mind fooled by mirages
of greener times.
Dust storm arguments
a parched heart
that thirsts for answers.
strong mountains stood fast:
a vast fortress repelling any foe.
tall hemlocks shaded the unreasonable.
quiet streams watered:cool and quenching.
clear breezes cleaned and renewed.
stretches to far horizons.
bequeath unyielding fire.
shift before the unrelenting winds.
there is always an oasis
in the desert,
I must find it so that I
this seed of hope
in the palm of my mind.
