Oasis

Loneliness is quicksand,
you wallow, you sink
but on the edge of that mire

you will find an olive branch
sent by a friend
reach for their hand

Self-pity is a desert
in which dreams are starved
friends are the oasis
drink deep, drink heartily

Among a sea of doubt
friends will brave storm and circumstance
to stop you from drowning

Friends are the oasis
drink deep
live well.
