​A Clear Vision
Not even an oasis was expected 

Out in the deserted wasteland

Where years of self sacrifice 

Had brought her could be found

Virtually parched she roamed

Across unfamiliar routes

Bringing nothing more with her

Than unfailing determination 

She was positively sure

Of one underpinning truth

Which had strengthened her

To continue through adversity 

Neither cold nights or sand storms

Or the bones of failures by the way

Deterred her ceaseless progression

Into the direction of her dreams

At the height of her adversity 

She maintained a clear vision

Of what she intended to achieve

Deciphering each step ahead

Sure as the rising and setting sun

And the moon reflecting at night 

She would find herself eventually 

On the throne of actualized desires
