Exiled Angel

Exiled Angel

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)

 

She sits on a ledge

of a high rise building,

feet caked in dirt

even thou she can fly.

Seeking comfort

in the modern Stone Age

has left her heart

feeling like concrete

leaving her unable

to fulfill her destiny.

Then announcing halos

to be as useless

as the American dollar

in the fight for humanity

has left her exiled

from those who pray

for compassion and tolerance.

For that same reason

I have brought her into my home

with open arms and mind

where she can come clean

and find salvation.

Like everything else, if you want to achieve holiness, you've gotta get your hands (and wings) dirty... Great metaphor and imagery here. Makes me think about all the angels I already know, who are weary...

Yeah I know lol :P
A leader, stands to speak, to fight, the thoughts propel,He feels them strong within himself,strong behind him,On the horde comes ,their trampling ,opens his eyes,to look behind all are gone,to look above, and on the perch,halo at her feet,wings a robe around her breasts swollen in defeat.Hair hung masking tears,droplets of love,he reaches carries her flaming feathers , haunted heart , home into a now full hollow.

You have some unique way of thinking and expressing yourself :)
Not really sure I understand this ..
But many do have the power to heal, with the heart ..

Never be afraid to reach out ..

No understanding need, just your own interpretation... amen to the power to heal with the heart.
Good job at turning a negative situation to a positive one.
