I Got You

What I knew was dismantled
My home was taken from me
I am in a better place I know
But it does not feel like it
My body still has to get used to feeling safe
And it is very safe
But my body is on alert
How do I calm it down?
“I got you” I keep saying to it
But my nervous system doesn’t believe me
How do I convince my body that I won’t put it in harm’s way anymore?
How do I convince it that I know better?
