In The Distance,Yet So Far

I saw a man in front of me walking down the road,
Dressed in white robes with hair oiled back,pressing against his neck.
Although i never saw his face i knew that he had fame
i saw he had a following nation upon nation wide,
Some had tried to follow him and walk in his tribe,
some had been lost in the desert,hoping to find another way,
Others roaming helplessly each and every day.
A woman came towards me,holding out her hand,she asked to share my road with me,
She seemed to understand,
she pointed to the man,she told me to run,we could keep clean and still have fun.
One day we hope to have the pleasure of knowing that man,for now there are only tales of him,
