The path we walk alone. #poetry

what do you see #46

Take a breath
Calm your heartbeat
A thump!…A sigh!…
Step by step
No time to lose
Breathe…
The journey is long
And the day is hard
But who knows what wakes in the night

Sands that change
Dunes that come alive
Winds that thirst

Quiet…
Tread lightly…
The shadows grow long
Dark things begin to stir
Dry winds cast heat aside
And ghast a chilling cold
Will bravery help you
Will persistence earn you reward
The mysteries of life’s journey
And the desert path we all must walk alone

By day, the sun
By night, the stars
The wisdom of those that came before
Our guide through the toughest of times
For the ocean waits at desert’s end,
An oasis for those who see the journey through.

Who shall come
Dredge rock bottom
where few overcome
And thus discover whom one,
is meant to become
