Thirsty and weary, the feet drags on
The spirit not having lost hope
Suddenly the most inviting sight beckons
With a glistening lake in my peripheral view.
I feel blood gushing through my every pore
From the tip of the head to the toe
Eureka! I jump in glee
As I hasten in incredible speed
Oh Alas ! A mirage !!
In place of, what I thought was an oasis!
In a quest for something, that never was
Oh the nuances of the mind and the heart !
