A Safe Haven, For Her

A Safe Haven, For Her

1 min 13.5K 1 min 13.5K

Rotten air filled my lungs

And I ran back home

Lurking hands, preying eyes: stung

Late night streets no place to roam


The air had a foul smell

Of groped bodies, of rape

Of silent cries of help, of mercy

Of stale blood and corpses made


And I ran home, faster

Home is a safe place

But the air in there was just the same

Similar monsters I had to face


Outside reeks with danger

Inside, evil hides with smiles

Created equal, from Adam's rib

But a woman with filth is piled


How easily the Creator is destroyed

For pleasure, then left tormenting

This is the plight of a woman

Lonely in the battle, but fighting


Many have died in this war

Screaming, when will it be over?

Creating a safe haven for Her

Is my dream to die for.
