Long I stumbled through the desert of a broken life
Blinded and seared by unending pain
Choking and gasping with ever present fear
Lurching forward to find a place to fall

On the horizon, I see an oasis of calm
I struggle onward, toward the place
Long is the walk and hard is the way
And then I find 'twas but a mirage

I am fading fast in the heat of despair
Parched in my soul from the lack of hope
I cannot go on nor can I stop
To fall here now is death for sure

I see the place and do not believe
I have thought it was there and never it was
Still I go on though my mind says give up
This time my eyes do not deceive

I have found that oasis of Peace
I fall to my knees to drink from the waters
The air is cool and calm the scene
I finally found the spring of Hope.

"I finally have my heart!"

To the perps: Don't worry about me coming after you. But you damn well better watch out for God! "Vengeance is mine", saith the Lord

What a powerful poem. I'm glad you have found hope and may you never let go of that. You cannot be defeated so long as you hold on to your hope.

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
(Woody Guthrie)
