Christina A. Sharik

(For the Sanctuary Group)

One, she is a Butterfly,
and one is writing songs
and some are holding on by threads
and one hopes she belongs.
Some of us lived through it
and some of us just waited
for someone to come home to us,
and the home that we created.
Some of us write poetry
(a “war of words”, you see)
and some are truly grateful,
and one of these is me –
We’re all just trying to make it
and although we may seem wary –
We offer Peace, and to those who seek,
we offer Sanctuary.
