My Sanctuary

Poetry by Luke Gillenwalters

My Sanctuary

There is a quiet place in my home,

where only I am allowed to roam.

It’s a room that is all about me,

a place where I always feel free.

When I’m stressed and feeling down,

this is where I can be found.

I think and work things out in my head,

I often will lay down on my bed.

Things from my life fill this space,

awards, games, pictures of my face.

I can let my imagination take the lead,

like the Templar from Assassin’s Creed.

Everyone needs a place to call their own,

a relaxing space when you’re feeling alone.
