To Be A Shelter… Poem A Day Prompt: Shelter


I want to be a shelter,
To people in my path.
Those I meet upon my journey,
Sharing the love I have.

I want to live with arms open,
Welcoming hurting souls.
To love unconditionally,
And help shoulder people’s loads.

I want to refrain from judgment.
I want to see people as they are.
Through lenses of compassion,
To comfort their unhealed scars.

I want to be a sanctuary,
Sharing the light I have to give.
Reflecting kindness and beauty,
This is what I wish.
