Tell me,
What makes you feel safe?
Is it the warmth of your mother?
Or your sister’s embrace?
Inside your swollen lungs,
What are you wanting to say?
Your guitar strings unstrung,
And your burdens displayed.
Inside eyes of a patron
And the heart of a saint
Head resting at a train station,
In a thin blanket, you are draped,
I just can’t help but wonder,
Do you need to be saved?
If you sleep with your sorrows,
What makes you feel safe?
