"Safe" is one of my most recent poems. It reflects the feeling of comfort and protection that I experience now that I am safely single.

In my marriage, I enjoyed learning submission; allowing my husband to lead our family and trusting that he would lead with love. I can't even express how unsafe I felt as a woman when I looked up to discover that he had abandoned me with no intention of returning.

Immediately I asked myself simple questions, "Where do I go?" A 10 year plan that I did not create, only supported, is no longer the direction. So, what do I do? Whatever I want. Now I can do whatever it is that I want. Sounds simple, right? Not really. I'm still learning how to live as a single woman, lead myself, and enjoy it. I think I'm doing quite well.

And now the person leading me, loves me. And I feel safe. Safer than I have ever felt.



I Want To Feel Safe

Safe Like The Baby Bird In The Nest High Above

Safe Like The Nurtured Child Wrapped In Its Mother's Love

Safe Like The Blue In The Daylight Sky

Safe Like The Moon Sure To Show When Night Arrives

I Want To Feel Safe

Safe Like The Words The Prophets Spoke

Safe Like Hannah When From Her Prayer She Rose

Safe Like Baby Jesus In The Manger

Safe Like Moses Shielded From God's Anger

I Want To Feel Safe

So Safe I Feel Free

Freedom Like No One Has Ever Tasted

A Freedom So Sure It Could Never Be Wasted


I Want To Feel Safe
