Fly

Fly

A Poem by Aysia
"

I know this poem is late due, it's in honor of the victims of the Connecticut shooting.

"
Heaven couldn't predict, 
The delivery of new-found wings.
Heaven couldn't imagine,
The pain they'd have to face.

Is it not enough, to silence 
The innocent and forget the forgotten?
Is it not enough, to punish
The sinful and praise the saint? 

The echos of the death angel,
Ring out through the halls.
He slices his way through their
Tiny mangled hearts and pained faces.

A time where cowards are cowards,
And heroes receive heaven's victory crown.
Where new harps are carved and passed on
To the new crowd of angels, floating through the gates.

As they fly, fly fly up, 
There is nothing holding them back.
Even the death angel himself,
Drops his head in cold defeat.
