    Desrt life is challenging and uncomfortable. However, one could find fulfilment in the desert if we commit our duties to mankind and God. May you find joy as you traverse in that desert attending to human needs

    Quite a heart-versus-mind situation, I must say. Follow your heart, Ellen, but only when it is not self-destructive.

    Well Ellen, I for one hopes you won't fade once you've arrived at the desert because then we won't be able to enjoy any more sensational writes' like this. I really enjoyed this. Thank you for sharing such a lovely poem!

    Intriguing imagery, nicely penned ideals of loneliness finding a way to dreams In the desert.
