Dust Storm


Wind blowing harder

Kicking up the sand

Trudging forward into the unknown

Sand blasting into my face

Unable to see my place

Walking, walking, walking

Forward I must go

Unyielding it beats against my skin

Tearing and blasting, ripping away

Pain is digging deeper

Can I go on

Blinding me, pushing back at me

My body feeling the strain

Going backwards is not an option

Left or right brings no relief

Forward I trudge into the abyss

Should I just give up

Sit down in the sand

Let it cover me over

To be found no more
