A Hand to Hold

Sometimes All You Need Is a Safe Space

Sometimes all you need is a safe space

Someone to recognize you for who you truly are

Someone to hear you

To remind you, you're not alone.

Someone to show you their true self

To dare to grace you with their vulnerability

Sometimes it's just a whisper

A word of encouragement you need

Someone to let you know it's okay to shine

Sometimes all you need is to hear

You are beautiful

You are strong

You are loved

To reignite the fire

And illuminate the fiercely radiant spirit

That lies deep within

Sometimes all you need is a hand to hold

On this journey
