Fallen Angel

Flung from Grace
Hell licking at my heels
Flames engulfing me
For nothing but one mistake
Oh vengeful fates
Where is
Forgiveness
Understanding
Love?

Flung from Grace
Stranded on a rock
The broiling sky above me
For nothing but one mistake
Oh vengeful fates
Where is
Forgiveness
Understanding
Love?

Flung from Grace
Excluded from paradise
Tattered wings
Broken spirit
Bereft of hope
Just one more victim
Of the vengeful fates
Vultures circling
Ready to take a bite
Thor’s hammer
Poised to strike

Flung from Grace
Head held high
Just one more victim
Rising to the challenge
Heart soaring
       with love and exultation
       with joy and triumph
A spirit rising from the ashes
Growing gossamer wings
Making my own rules
Embracing grace of mind and body
Oh vengeful fates
Here it is
Forgiveness
Understanding
Love

Just one more fallen angel.

Artist's Description

A poem both about the social, political, and historical framework women work within since Eve, but also the personal feeling of being ‘flung from grace’ when a mistake seems to rock your world and we have to pull ourselves out of the mire and re-invent ourselves.
