“I hear you sigh in thirst,
tired of feeling so dry and cracked open,
longing for an oasis to appear and refresh your soul.
I hear you, and I AM
your oasis even here in the desert.
I AM the hidden stream for your roots to discover,
and I AM your hope
for an unfathomable well, even before
you find and savor the fresh waters of the well itself.
I hear you breaking;
fear not, for I am the green pliability
that can revive the stiffened branches of your faith.”
