Safe (Poem)

Being in his arms feels safe,

Yes, I’ve been held before by other men,

I never truly felt safe,

I never really trusted other men,

Yet with him I trust him and feel safe.

 

I didn’t feel safe with a military man,

I didn’t feel safe with a wrestling man,

I didn’t feel safe with a law enforcement man,

I always felt I had to protect myself with each man,

These men who had the strength to protect didn’t feel like a safe man.

 

I realized that a man doesn’t have to be big to make you feel safe,

I realized that a man doesn’t have to be tall to make you feel safe,

I realized that man doesn’t need to have a fighting type of career to make you feel safe,

I realized that a man doesn’t need to be a great fighter to make you feel safe,

It’s about the man making you feel safe.

 

A man who won’t ever raise his hand might make you feel safe,

A man who would do his best not to harm you might make you feel safe,

A faithful man might make you feel safe,

A man who’ll be there when things get hard might make you feel safe,

A man who respects you might make you feel safe.

 

Yet a man who truly loves you will do his best to protect you even if he isn’t big, tall, or a great fighter,

Perhaps you’ll both stay and fight danger together,

Love gives ya’ll strength to be a fighter,

Love might make ya’ll protect together,

Thus, you might feel safe knowing that true love would make him a fighter.

 

Yet why would you want to stay with someone who doesn’t make you feel safe?

Why would you want to stay with someone who won’t protect you?

You don’t need someone who doesn’t make you feel safe,

You don’t need someone who doesn’t protect you,

You deserve someone who truly loves you, protects you, and makes you feel safe.
