I am a safe space
-
I am human 
I am alive and so are you
I am consciousness and matter
My body feels, my body feels you
I am heart, mind, gut, earth, empathy
-
I am a safe space
I like people
People like me and take care of me
-
I am community
I am togetherness
I am a human
I am nature
I am because we are
-
Welcoming
Soft
Respectful
Comfortable
Embracing
Spacious
-
I am a sociable person
I am an argumentative person
I am the kind of person who likes discussions with all kinds of people
-
I am a listener 
I am a warm body to cuddle up to
I am part of a vibrant constructive community
-
I keep intruders outside
I make you invisible from the outside world, when you need me to
I am full of food
-
I am community
I am togetherness
I am a human
It’s never cold or windy inside me
You can leave whenever you feel like
-
I am attentive
I am considerate
I am responsive to others
I anticipate your needs
I reach from safety into care and from care into pleasure
I am sensual, smelling, touching, hearing
-
I am a safe space 
I am a co-operative and you can join
I am a fair economy and we can exchange
I am free and you can be free with me

I have trust
I take care and I’m being cared
I welcome
I deliver
I receive
I find time

I am able to feel pain, weakness and strength
Nobody judges
We all appreciate

Laughter and fun
Recovering and healing
-
I am a safe space where those who thought they were enemies fall in love, those who thought they were arid bloom. 
-
I am a safe space that surprises myself and others. 
-
But how can we know what a safe space is? Really?
But what does it mean to be a safe space for others, for all of us?
-
LISTEN
-
I am a safe space because I know who I am
-
I am a tree
I provide protection and cover and I have a solid floor
I am not judgemental 
I listen
I am moss
I am shelter
I am a shoulder
I am listening
I am still 
I am connecting
I am a room
I am a city
I am a country
I am a bridge
I am an ocean
I am compassion
I feel you 
I am you
