I Want to Feel Safe Again

call me out of the shadows i call home

call me out of this place that stripped me to the bone

call me out of the burning fire of life

call me away from the blade of a knife

call me to a place where i may rest my head 

call me to a place where i can live. not feel dead 

call me out of the place where, the sinks are not washed red

call me out of the place where deeply my soul bled

call me to a place where my scars are to be praised 

call me to a place there;"You made it" they would say 

call me from the place,where the only feeling is one of dread 

call me from the place. where demons live in my head.

call me to a place. where the ragged tears will fade 

call me to a place where words aren't needed to explain

call me to a place, where i can feel safe again.

because i want to feel safe again 

This poem is about: 
Me
My country
Our world
