Artist's Description

“It’s in their nature,” Michael said.
“Nothing you can do about it, kid.”

“Their nature?!”
The kid had a defiant, stubborn look.
“And Who was it gave them their nature?!”

Michael sighed a weary sigh.
He’d seen this many times before.
The young ones, keen, eager to go down there
make a difference, peace on earth and all that.
“They have free will to do and be as they choose.”

The kid rolled his eyes, snorted a laugh.
“Yeah, right!!” he scoffed.
“So, have I permission to go down there or not?”

The archangel studied the young angel before him.
This kid who had not a clue what he was asking.
Not a clue how confronting those demons of war would affect him.
Could he survive and come out intact?
Or would he end up like the lost ones,
drifting in limbo between heaven and hell?

“You have my permission,” the Archangel said.
How could he refuse?
He’d done the same thing himself.
He knew how this would play out,
knew it was pointless trying to stop him.
The young one had to do this and find out for himself.
