The Shore

Two steps ahead of me

I see the desert burning

I take a step back

Afraid by what is coming

.

I take a breath

And step ahead

My feet will melt

Soon I’ll be dead

.

What keeps me up

Is what they said

The road is tough

Pleasure ahead

.

Walk through fire

To reach the shore

Regret I not

My feet are sore

I made at last

To the Shore!
