I awake in the desert in a dry
and thirsty land...

I long for the water of wisdom
I cry out for one drop of

The sun burns me with the
desire to know truth...

My lips are caked with the dry
sands of the unknown...

I yearn for a tree of answers
to sit under...

I see the dead carcass of
unfulfilled dreams...

I stumble over the bones of
unanswered questions...

I shout for a breeze of clarity
to relieve my hunger...

I sink into the sands of sorrow
clutching for sanctity...

And God takes my hand.
