Tranquility Haven

by Miguel Alverio

When the beer and the smoke was gone
and it seemed all hope was gone
She welcomed me with open arms
giving me a place
where I can feel safe
Starting off with intake
and its warm embrace
Loving a creature from the wild
like the nurturing of a child
Building my self esteem
letting me know I’m worthwhile
I return to the jungle
a bit more humble
Instead of a hate for me
I could tell myself
I love you.
