I promise I’ll lend you my ear,
If you will lend me your honesty.
I promise I’ll listen without judgment,
If you will speak without lies.
This is a place of emotions,
A place where it’s okay to feel,
I promise they won’t hurt you,
I promise neither will I.
Here, you can rant or cry,
Or shout or sigh,
You can release everything
You’re keeping inside—
Now, would you like to tell me
What’s on your mind?

New. Nowadays, I find myself searching for a safe space.
P.S. Rosema, Maria, and I will be taking a break from the weekly World of Words prompt to recharge and decide on our next step. Thank you to all who have participated and shared in the celebration of poetry and the different languages of the world.
