I’m in the middle of a desert,
I’m dying of a deadly thirst,
Storms of all types strike the pit,
Sand dunes entering my kit.

The sun is burning me so hot,
I do freeze with cold at night,
I fear my feelings to get hurt,
With my tears falling short.

I have been forced to shout,
But there is no one near to scout,
I think I’m going to fall and faint,
My legs can’t move for they are bent.

I’m raising my eyes up for uplift,
I think my blood is going to clot,
My friends are not there to lament,
But I am all there, ready to die in a fight.
