Fallen Angel

This was a poem I posted a while back, and one I wrote over 10 years ago. It is still my favourite. The other day Meme kindly posted her song of my most popular poem, ‘The Blogger’s Prayer’. Today I am posting my personal favourite poem. 

 

Fallen Angel

Fallen Angel

Fallen Angel, cry you not:

Fate is fickle, Sin is not.

Devil-talk with honeyed words,

Homo-sapiens often turned

No thought to reason

Instinct over-ridden

For dream realisation –

Creation of your vision.

All for just one tiny lie

To society, yourself, and try

To say it’s not so bad,

The fuss’ll die I’m just a fad

There’ll be many more after me –

I’m not the only one who ate the apple from the tree.

From legs to serpent we downward slide

And falling ever since cannot be denied.

So God is gone from prayer and hope,

Society keeps pushing you to cope

Then you snap, start to rebel

And the devil comes sniffing ready to tell

How best to get back at those who’ve annoyed

Before you know it the devil’s new toy

And the light has faded – you’re all alone-

Old, angry, bitter, no way to atone

So in limbo you waver, caught by sin,

Reaching for Heaven with no way in.

Purgatory, a way unfurled –

That’s why I’m here; today, in this world.

  4. I think it is wonderful when we write something and look back upon it and say, “I like this”.
    And then not hesitate to tell others that we like our own stuff. I write mostly silly things but often there is serious behind all the silly.
    If others don’t always understand the meaning of our writing…that is OK. Just maybe we have given them a little something to think about. 🙂

    • Perfectly said!
      I wrote this at a time my poetry was personal to me, & no-else saw it… and it still means something to me, & I hope now that other people understand its meaning too.
      And too right we should ‘like our own stuff’… we created it, there’s nothing wrong with being proud of our own creations 🙂
