Mar 2015
Aimlessly wandering desert plains
Sifting the sands in search of your name
Heat waves beating from a blazing star
An unquenchable thirst to find who you are

Mirage after mirage allude your eyes
Casting illusions that your search is nigh
Across the sand flows a blood soaked creek
Masking the truth for which you seek

But deep beneath the surface are your fortunes untold
Upon a tattered old book, your name in bold
Stop following the deceptions that you see
Follow your heart it will set you free
