Cruel desert

Life is a mid-west desert
Scorching whenever it gets the chance.
Hardly any beings can truly bare the conditions,
No relief in sight.
Extensive days and very cool nights wait.
But my mind is an oasis.
In these unforgiving realities,
Thoughts shade the harsh rays.
Keeping me trapped in a retreat.
I forget to notice the desert sand,
And the world seems less cruel.
