It's strewn with hard rocks that burn under a merciless sunYou may need to run them bare feet, to escape the heat of the stones.
When it rains the same slippery and you have to tread so carefully lest you slip.
And this road ends sometimes abruptly and you are on a slope that merges into the valley below and you walk in the wonder of the beautyespecially if the valley is being kissed by a setting sun.
And suddenly a stream cuts across the expanse of groundSparkling water
And you stop by its sidebend, and scoop the crystal clear water and drinkto quench a thirst that you did not you hadYou wash your hands and face and think it is heaven.
But you leave the streamwhich does not even become a memory and move on...
into the heart of a merciless desert...b you cross the dessert too, and reach the road that leads to the oasis...
has been like that to melife is like that to us. at timesbrutal at others and immensely beautiful and quiet at other times It helps to tap into a pool of emotional balance that we all have.
