Lone Soles
Feet on broken earth
Do dance on barren land
Praying for grass and green
Through soles covered in sand

Hands pounding drums
To a beat that all will know
For they will dance until
The rain god heals their woe

Man, woman, and child
Gather for a healing taste
Of refreshing sky water
Brushing against their face

As the heat gets more intense
Even in the night time sky
Desperate souls grow weary
And start to question why

The music growing louder
Cries are heard in the wind
As it becomes a battle of will
With no side seeming to bend

Then one lone man remains
When all else have given in
The dance of the lone soul
A man who knows he’ll win

The music stopped long ago
Yet he still dances on
His weary soles dreaming
Of puddles to dance in at dawn

Even after the mockers
Grew tired of the display
Even after he was left alone
And all had walked away

Days and nights he battled
Till lightning traced the sky
Thunder drums gave him back his music
And a reason why

And when the sky opened up
And poured its blessing down
The weary soles of this man
Danced on muddy ground

They called him thunder foot
The one that danced to his own drum
They called him god seeker
Some say, a chosen one

When this man finally fell
They carried him to a place
Where he could sleep in peace
While rain fell on his face

Hi Angel . . . A really great write this one. I love the way you intentionally confuse "sole" with "soul" as almost interchangeable. I would suggest, however, that the fourth stanza be changed to "souls" as it takes a certain animation to "question why" in the following line. A "sole" cannot do this. Mostly I love the culturally early image this conjures. Dancing of various types is the basis of godly celebration. Congratulations in receiving this level of recognition. You well deserve it. RM.

To hold to your beliefs when all others have abandoned you is a feeling most of us will never know..This was a joy to read, all except for the "fury-furry" rhyme. It seems forced and a little comical. A small chink in an otherwise shing suit of poetry..len
