Poem: Here

pillows

Here

Here,
you are safe.

Here,
you may heal.

Here, the walls will protect you
from the storms
that have rendered you broken
and scarred.

Here, it is warm.
Here, you may pray without the devil’s banshee cry
roaring in your ears

Here,
you may gather your strength.
You may grow
any way you choose.

Here,
even the tiniest whisper has value.
The fear slowly evaporates.
Here, prayers are answered
and you are loved.

Here,
you are safe.
