The Desert of life

The desert lies before
Its vastness open wide.
I long to find the answer
An oasis in my mind.

The sun it beats upon
Everything it can find.
My soul thirsts for reassurance
In its solitary confines.

The arid search for justice
Beckons forth once more.
Step by step I travel longing
For the promised door.

I trust that I will find it
That darkness cannot last.
The breaking of a new dawn
Opens up at last.
