A Poem by SR Urie



There have been times where my mind

Faced horrible crime, my body

In such a bind that life was

Far too painful to embrace.


What if there was a place

Where your mind could find peace,

Safety, Relief from fear

And pain and shocking violations of life?


Just think of it;

A room just up the stairs,

Large wooden table with comforting chairs,

Where all the cares and fears

Can no longer reach your frightened mind.


It’s where there’s an elderly couple,

A pair of God’s angels can unwind

Your terrifying pain, memories that

Strain your weak and fettered mind.


You can relax and eat, drink your fill,

Smoke if you like, joke away the night;

Where you’re safe to be

Just exactly who you really are.


Barren, wooden walls of oak,

Dusty floors that stare up

To the window of a painting,

A window, a door to Sanctuary.


Safety, free from fear - pain,

Protection from evil, care from the

Old ones who’ve been beyond to

Return; Angels in this place of Love.
