Concrete Angel

She came down from above. 
Through the wind and the rain.
All she carried was love. 

She stood tall. 
As she took it all. 
This day was bound. 
Death was always near. 

Wanted to carry the flames. 
 If she make's it through.
This concrete life of  pain. 
She'll see butterflies, not tears.

I know she has angels near her.
They'd like to take her home.
Though she chooses to stay here.

I see her delicate fluttering  wings.
Of flaming silver, blue and gold.
  She must learn to use them. 
That's all it will take, for her to fly. 
From this perverted degrading place.

    the world, but this story has pre-empted it all. I hope your wings are strong and thank you for all your kind comments. Perhaps I will decide to write something soon.

    I hope you don't mean that the whole earth is perverted and degrading. I thought I was the only one who thought like that. Actually, there are some wonderful things, but it's getting harder and harder to resist the culture of selfishness we have. I really like how you took some inspiration from Debra. From your work and comments, I believe you do have wings. Nice hearing from you as always. I am so bludgeoned by Boston right now, I can't think. There is more happening in the rest of....
