desert faces

when did an arid
complexion symbolize strength
when water and the
nourishment it brings carries
not an escape or an excuse
but the true release we need
to feed our souls and grow flowers
beyond the weeds that leave us
thirsty, disoriented, misguided
into wanting more by looking for
those things that bring a temporary
light to other’s eyes, but leaves
ours inked in eternal night
