An Angels Wings

Shake the rust from these worn eyes,
throw me down to the puddle outside,
tell me to leave and kick me some air,
the whisper of “I hate you”,
lets me know that you care.

I know that there’s no feelings,
yet I feel warmth in your heart,
when I reach my hand in friendship,
you think to swear is the way to start.

I don’t walk these streets in vain,
I help the helpless who needs my eyes,
do you not wonder why I lay here,
only at your doorstep with the flies.

If I could speak,
I’d only scream and drown you with my hate,
I’m glad patience took my voice,
and this hateful hurting plate.

I was just like you,
filled with flames to tear the earth,
shunning all the good and help,
stubborn till I lost the breath.

My belief was set in sight,
death was final, eventually the end,
as I stood infront of those golden gates,
He took pity in what he deserved a mend.

I saw my life in full,
I saw my life, one of a fool,
if I could only die in death,
I would have used the bluntest tool.

I hung my head in shame,
I expected the hand to cast me down,
as He raised me to my feet,
He took my voice and angery frown.

My chance to have my wings,
He said to help another in my case,
I cryed tears that opened clouds,
and returned with love to the human race.

So that is why I lay here,
not homeless as you think,
all I show is my hand in help,
before you fall in hate and sink.

I know the warmth is still in there,
you only hurt from raising bricks,
just take my kindness and love,
shut your eyes while time still ticks.

Artist's Description

When time is still ticking and warmth lays in the heart of sadness and hate this angel must right the wrongs of his past and earn his wings by helping another.

It’s just been written, all that I put up in the bubble is new work, all old stuff stays in darkness, so I hope you like this, I had nothing else to right about ; )
