Safe Place

Safe Place

Safe Place

As a child, I hoped for a safer new year,

But pain stayed, always near.

Growing up, I created a safe haven in my mind,

Yet outside, safety was hard to find.

The shouts, the chaos, the sudden fight,

Memories built deep, day and night.

I grew, but the fear stayed strong,

In my mind’s sanctuary, where I belong.

A young girl seeking a place to be,

Away from a world too harsh to see.

Living where screams and pain was known,

Where pain was normalized, not outgrown.

I waited, longing for a safe embrace,

A sanctuary, a peaceful space.
