Sanctuary

By: Samantha Hughes Tiny sanctuary  Holds fifty people  Contains strength  Of fifty million  Holding hands  Iron grips  Voices never crack  Rising loudly  Leader releasing words  Throwing rapid fire darts  Hitting bullseyes  Body is here  Soul in Heaven  Room catching fire  Atmosphere remains  silent still pond
