Sanctuary

Life. A struggle

to create the perfect sanctuary

and just when we think we have

found it or created it (the sanctuary)

we lose it, we have to leave (the sanctuary)

or our sanctuaries turn unsafe

sacred no more, under assault

failing to serve its original purpose

yet, we look again to create another

sanctuary, a safe haven, a sacred place

no matter the futility of it all

we are all in search of a sanctuary

cocooned in a delicate house of glass

That is humanity’s common search

But the only sanctuary is inside

The sanctuary of the mind

Outer sanctuaries cannot be relied on
