I’ve barely eaten all day

But it doesn’t matter

I’very been hungry for hours now

But it doesn’t matter

I’ve made multiple plans in my head on what to eat

But it doesn’t matter

My soul finally feels fed

I finally feel secure

I have been wrapped in the arms of the boys I knew then and the men they are now

I have been cradled and protected in their arms

I have been reminded that people smile when they see me

That they reach out their arms to me

I don’t get courtesy hugs

I am given full-body contact and held tight hugs

The ones that say, I’ve missed you

I still care about you

We will survive this together
