Safe Now

Updated on August 23, 2016

After facing enormous difficulties, I moved across the country. There, I spent the next few years focusing on healing.

Listen While Reading

Sitting alone in the night's cool air

Crickets sing in my adoration

A welcome to the lovely and fair

A long awaited consolidation

A union of I and this place so serene

Saved by Divine intervention

Source

For though blessed as of this moment

'Twas not always great like so

Once imprisoned by a city's walls

A place where devils enjoy to go

Once cursed to live in torment

A place where demons run the show

Source

A garden for a slithering serpent

Allowed to explore his evil demeanor

One glance into his ugsome eyes

Chained 'twas I in terror

Fighting for who would take my soul

Tempting was his chosen sepulchre

Source

From every angle, and each viewpoint

Darkness clouds the deadened earth

'Tis a wonder sweet death did not take me

Yet given a chance for rebirth

'Tis a wonder my eyes behold beauty

Behold the cross's sweet worth

Source

In beauty does my soul now grow

Filled with love and freedom

A wonder to hear my welcome song

The devils fought, but were overcome

A wonder to hear the bull frogs sing

"Safe now" are the words they hum
