Sanctuary

Sanctuary

Tall grasses at
water’s edge 
as green as limes
Exotic blooms of lotus
flowering abundantly
time after time
 
Protective trees
shielding a sacred spot
where serenity is found
A place to regroup
and clear the mind
never hearing a sound

Space to Breathe

Space to Breathe

Weary as your scapegoat
I search for a sanctuary
Needing solace to heal
my thoughts, now fragmentary
A place where I may weep
with no fear of scorn
Having lost self-respect
and for that I mourn
 
Stillness and peace
comfort me here
Being lost in the stillness
not missing the fear
My thoughts uninterrupted
bringing needed serenity
Finding myself again
after losing identity
 
A small haven
where no one goes
My heart can regenerate
its love, as tension slows
Meditation brings relief
as I look back at my soul
I can see clearly now
Once again, I am whole
