Yet A Spark In This Lost Soul Still Ignites

Yet A Spark In This Lost Soul Still Ignites Cast into barren deserts of sorrow no real joy and no hope for tomorrow In burning darkness and hot blasting sand endless sad tunes from destiny's band. Nights are so cold and without future plans sorrow's furnace blows its misery fans Death, your deep, clawed grasp has taken this soul I, walking shadow, now with no life goal. Every new dawn, hot sun bakes and defeats this tired old beating heart with thirst it treats Hours pass as years, I find no real relief from deepest caverns of this epic grief. Yet a spark in this lost soul still ignites faith in my mind, I shall win future fights. 7-21-2017
