THE DESERT HAS EYES

THE DESERT HAS EYES

Across this land voyaging into the hotness of the powerful sun,

I tread slowly so that I do not perish on my quest to finish, to weather the storm.

Many things of interest as I make my way through this obstacle,

Of rocks and plants born to this world of natural wonder.

By myself, I’ve traveled for what appears to be a lifetime,

While the sun’s now sinking into the night as a cool breeze awakes.

There’s a fear being a prisoner to the intense darkness, the loneliness,

Am I alone with what inhabits these surroundings, they’re watching.

There are many eyes fixed on me, friend or foe, how shall I know,

Some keep their distance, not wanting to attack, others are stalking,

Seeking to steal or cause great pain.

I’ve seen the living proof, I’ll make it to where I’m going.
