In a desert not afraid  
I've been on this walk for days 
My pace becomes really slow 
The desert night becomes real cold 
I'm huddled up all alone  
A shiver  climbs all through my bones 
I awake another day to find myself in this place 
My bodies hot I can't think 
My mind slowly starts to slip 
My mouths so dry this aching thirst 
Then it hits me in a burst 
There is no desert it's only me 
A thirst for life that can't be eased

    One can live a dry and infertile life without ever leaving home. This is a thought-provoking write.
