A Wilderness

It is an  intrepid wilderness out there
So many wild capricious things to fear
The only shelter to be found
Are shadows that race across the searing ground

The tremulous fear is no less
Than death that causes most distress
As howling ghosts of past events
Bereave the mind of every sense

And the fiery sun slips across the sky
Day becomes night and time speeds by
For a moment shadows melt to one 
Bringing cool relief from the sun

Yet the burning star surely rises
Robbing us of all disguises
The wilderness again encroaches
Things must be faced  with  abiding forces

Each fearful thing a singular battle
Adding fuel to hope and mettle
The calescent ground now indeed
No longer searing to hardened feet

The unerring warrior forges forward
Across the dessert ever stalwart 
From wilderness, sun and fearful foe
The hero's immortal heart shall grow
