Where Are the Safe Places? – III

Parts I and II are here and here.

 

Where Are the Safe Places? – III

 

The safe place is acceptance.

All people, places and things are doing

Exactly as they should, nothing else.

And if they stab me, acceptance is safety.

And if they attack with words, acceptance.

And if they hate people, acceptance is safety.

 

Acceptance allows love to happen.

My lover is not perfect, but she welcomes me.

Time after time, whether she is wrong or I am,

We can come back to love and accept the safety.

We can hold each other tightly and accept.

We can sing with love and accept the safety.

    Only place we need, the arms of a loved one who accepts us as we are 😦
    Nice piece Carl, thanks 🙂

    So safe and warm are the arms we roll ourselves into. Take a moment for those who do not have such arms, for they are cold indeed.

    Dead on, Carl. Very good words.
