Desert Land

Dreams that weave themselves into reality
And waters of fulfillment that Are treasures that a mortal frame 
Yearns to find
We trudge fathomless seas
Long for the glisten of the rounded pearl
For all the gems of sweet content
That we somewhere left behind
But we fail to see the jester's malice
Who in our ignorance hides
He dons the suit of misleading hope
Exploits the paraphernalia of aphorisms in the human mind
Each day duly passes away
Contradictions always arise
Beaten we fall to the ground
Senseless, we feel not to have realized:
Life is a mirage, an artist's mind 
A mirage is all we can expect to find
Be it hope, faith or dismay
Someday it shall fade away
And here we stand, we look around
Our sweet joys are now salt on the ground
Our feet firm in sinking sand
We can only curse this desert land
