Digging Deep

By Liam Flanagan

A drought of the mind
A barren landscape
No oasis in sight

Bare footed in a desert where sand burns unprotected soles
The punishing heat of the sun resulting in a thirst unquenched
There is no water here to replenish and renew a wary spirit
No trees to provide oxygen to a tired suffocating soul
A prayer for rain to relieve the constant hurt and pain
Tormented and troubled on a journey which feels like
