Battered Angel

While sleeping one night! I had a dream,it left a tale to tell. I dreamed i seen an angel and she wasn’t looking very well, her body was bruised and battered, her wings were ripped and torn, I saw that she could barely walk. She was tired, weary and worn, Iwalked over to her and said ’’Angel’’ How could this be, as she looked back at me, and tried to smile, she said these words to me. I’m your guardian angel, Quite a job as you can see, you’ve lived a very hard life, with that you must agree. You have broken dreams and promises, what you see, you have done to me. These bruises are from sheilding you each day, I
do my best still. The drugs you’ve used so wrecklessly, I’ve often paid the bill, my wings you see are ripped and torn, a noble badge i bear. So many times they have sheilded you, but you were unaware, yes every mark has it’s own story of pain and danger i’ve destoryed. You’ve made me wish more than once that i was unemployed. If you would only embrace your life and do good on your own, it would end the pain and suffering, that goes with being your chaperone. I will always be there to watch over you , until my strength finally fails, as for when that will be, all i can say is i’m getting old and frail. When i awoke, i thought about my dream, how much she seemed to care. Then i looked around my prison cell and my heart sank in despair. As i sat there , i thought and wondered, why should i even try? The air rushed by, from beating wings, and i thought i heard an angel cry!

p.s. please comment whether it be good or bad
