Desert Travels

by stewart

Again, I have traveled into the land of lost dreams,

Empty desires and endless pain.

Many times, now, I have found myself in this desert,

Alone without provision and seemingly lost.

Angry, bitter and afraid

I have pushed on without direction or plan.


Suddenly, an arrow pierces my heart

I fall into the dirt,

And the buzzards begin to circle above.

Then I Remember-

I am not alone

For I have a Friend

To lift me out of this self-imposed exile.


Why have I traveled so long-

In this daze?

Because, again, I have relied on myself

And forgotten

From where I came

And where I am going?


O Lord, You allow me to fall

So, You might lift me up.


Why do I forget this?

Over and over, again.
