The Oasis

Written by: Scarlett Crittenden

It's all an illusion see?
Waste time chasing the oasis
The oasis can chase me
On the horizon about to break through

The other side I arrive
Unrecognized but not new

Now I'm saying who is who
While society plays make believe
Tries transforming what is she
Mind's imposed upon left thirsty

An open scope prevents the choke
Range cuts through noose of bias rope

From this point, I dug deep
Found the well I'd rather drink
All the work gave me strength
Now I never fall for just anything
