Sanctuary

By: Samantha Hughes

Tiny sanctuary

Holds fifty people

Contains strength

Of fifty million

Holding hands

Iron grips

Voices never crack

Rising loudly

Leader releasing words

Throwing rapid fire darts

Hitting bullseyes

Body is here

Soul in Heaven

Room catching fire

Atmosphere remains

silent still pond
