I Am Not An Angel

by | Dec 24, 2004 | Poetically Correct

I am not an angel
Unintentional in verse
I never took the vow
For better or for worse
I am not an angel
Your gun should not be drawn
When did I offend you?
What did I do wrong?
O’ yes, the one mistake
Was complaining the condition
But I am reinventing
The purpose of my mission
I am not an angel
Whether you love me
Or love me not
I am only human
Conformity my lot
Well, I’m slow to listen
To your Master of derision
I turn my back on him
Pledge allegiance with omission
I am not an angel
Tho’ one comforts my aching heart
Led so to temptation
Separate from Thou Art
My Father does forgive me
For the fool I’ve been
I acknowledge my earthen plight
So I may fly again
Forty years I had to wait
The Enemy stood strong
Knocking at my door
Stifling my song
Angel not am I
But I can hear them sing
Poetry in harmony
Revealing everything
Above, below, beyond
Whispered to a scream
Within and without
In reality the dream.
