The Illusory Oasis

-
(Class got over earlier than expected, time to scribble a little :-))
---

He had struggled for aeons through the desert,
Endless dunes is all he had seen in years so many,
Had imagined oases, all meaningless mirages; always,
And had reconciled to his destiny, the barren desert.

Scared he was of those illusory oases,
For his dreams had been smashed countless times,
He couldn't bear being shattered again, and again, and again...
So he gave up dreaming;

And after ages he had seen an oasis again,
He had seen...or maybe had allowed himself to see,
And he had felt the old thrill, the same scare,
He had felt...or maybe had allowed himself to feel;

And I prayed for him and for the desert,
That this time it wasn't a mirage.
