Things that make me feel safe

Things that make me feel safe

red hues at a sunset

It’s the rain after a long draught,
and sunshine after long rain is equally sought.
It’s a kind word from the lips of a stranger,
and a friend with whom the truth is never in danger.
It’s the feeling that the theater of the skies
will always be there for our eyes:
be it the dreading yellow light just before the storm,
or the artist’s palette
of red hues at a sunset.
It’s not so much about seeing your wallet grow,
but more about the faith in the eternal money flow.
It’s the gratitude for the roof above my head,
a good company beneath it and a warm bed.
It’s the wish the homeless would no longer so be,
that a helping hand would cover them free.
