The Safest Place I've Ever Known

Danger lurks in every corner of this house.
It creeps through every crevice,
leaving me unhinged from safety,
vulnerable and void.
So I creep into my mother’s arms
and settle on her lap.
I snuggle up to her praying chest
and let the fears be cast away.

Here, I am safe.

  4. From "unhinged" to the "praying chest," I love this poem. I remember feeling that way myself when we lived in a huge house. I'm lucky to still have my Mom,
