SEEKING ASYLUM

Our sanctuary is our togetherness Where tenderness thrives effortless We’ve forged ahead never sitting on sidelines Traveling roads of scattered joys and landmines Depths of unity a pearl so rare to find Time lasting beyond the confines of our mind Fighting uphill battles, life’s rollercoaster ride Reaching journey’s end with nowhere left to hide Once the dragons have all been slain There’s a haven where you will feel no pain Comes the hour that can no longer be outrun Fear not the sleep in arms of angels, loved one Submitted on August 17, 2020 for contest SANCTUARY sponsored by SILENT ONE - RANKED 2ND

Re-reading this, upon your wonderful win in Brian's contest, I am struck by how each couplet can serve as a profound poem in and of itself. My favorite is: 'Depth of unity a pearl that's rare to find// Time lasting beyond the confines of our mind.' Congratulations on a richly-deserved win, Line!
