Safe Haven

Here I am,
surrounded by difference,
even within my own
family.
My neighbours –
bigger, wider, taller
yet all with a similar
purpose.
Striving for the light,
nourished by our surroundings.
We each came
from somewhere different,
but this ground we
were placed in,
nurtured and supported.
Not where I
belong, yet
a safe haven
in which I can
grow.
