Enemy to a Friend

by Angelina Morris
(Dunmore Pa USA)




The desert sun burns brightly
Upon the glowing sand
My horse and I trudge onward
Searching for grassy land
Suddenly I fall,
Landing hard on the ground
But my horse runs forward
Nowhere to be found
I have no water or nourishment
No clothes to shield the sun
I lay my head down slowly,
But then just when I think I’m done
I see a long silken robe
And under that formidable hood
I see eyes that are very familiar
But are also far from good
I look up into those dark, deep eyes
Eyes that had hated me so
They were the eyes of my sworn enemy
The eyes of my well known foe
He reached out a hand to help me
And this I cannot believe
That an enemy can turn to a friend
Within your hour of need
As I walk toward the valley
Where I can eat and drink
I lift my head up slowly
And begin to think
There is no better way I could have been saved from my end
But the way of turning
An enemy into a friend
