He had a message of how to make water in the desert
While all around him the people were parched for thirst, they knew no cloud
But little did he know there were places where the clouds unleashed their loads in torrents
And the problems they faced in those lands were how to keep dry, and they cried for the blue sky
And the breeze, whispering through the sands
The Horizon clear and wide, no endless realms of rain.
He had a mind that was filled with perplexity and questions
Saying "I could be the One, but he who thinks he's the One, is mad, or a liar, or deluded with lies"
He could find no compromise
But little and by little, he took to walking driven by his need to understand
Wandered far, found himself in a land one misty new day
Where they played a game with what he would say
And all the while, clouds marching across the miles
Were changing visions, and as the thunder peeled he smiled, said
"What gift is there like Rain?"
And what happened to him?
He came round in the end, just like all the rest
In time, he told his story wrapped in rhyme.
