I roam this earth, in search

I find after long and difficult wait

I lose it in moments still

I stop breathing in that pain

My mind searches in all the lands

My heart just beats to pump blood

I stop looking out and stay within

I dream of dreams but never wish

I stay in my lands and wait forever

I smile,  I laugh,  I breathe

But only in moments unaware

I glance at me

I see my eyes sad and questioning


I have no answer, I know not the reason

I stopped looking out and accept the way

I can’t fight what I can’t change

The paths are written,  I follow them

Questions are a waste, reasons are flimsy

I now know what I must do

I walk on the unseen roads

I look at the mountains 

I look at the sand 

I see the desert that lie in front 

I long for the water, a mirage will do

I don’t care much,  if it is lie or truth

I lived in truth, I lived the lie

What difference does it make what either is

I still can hear my heart in pain

I still can feel the fires on soles

I look down 

I look up,  then I look within

I see the fires in my soul

Burning low, burning deep 

It is smothered with life sometimes

But it is always there when nothing appears

Burning bright, burning deep 

Always burning…..

    Totally missed them and very happy to read again.
