By Hendro Darsono
There’s a spacious desert
That I must walk across
With these bare feet
No camel
No donkey

Time after time
I try to complete this journey
A long and hard journey
Replete with obstacles
That never stop to bridle

My body is burned by the sunshine
Stricken by the storm
I’m so in thirst
This journey is really tiring
This journey is really boring

I keep on walking and walking
Trying to seek a drop of water
Though it’s hard to get it
Yet… there must still be some water
Left in this desert
