Beneath such dark and angry skies,
as thunder roars its rage
and lightening blinds the night to day
and casts me to this age.
Through toxic clouds, I choke and gag
that burns to stumps, my wings,
no longer held in Heaven’s grace,
no more this Angel sings.
Such pain I’ve never felt before,
such fear I’ve never known,
“Why hast thou forsaken me
in mortal flesh and bone?”
No more to walk eternity,
no more to walk in Light,
no more my immortality,
no more may I take flight.
A soul bestowed unto my heart,
a gift that has its curse,
awareness of the sins of man,
a world I must traverse.
And so my broken body heals,
my last gift from above,
that I may stand and walk my path
until redeemed in love.
I find that I’m afraid to die,
yet too afraid to live,
without divine immortal grace,
I’ve nothing left to give.
A church becomes my sanctuary,
a priest becomes my friend,
I mourn the life I left behind,
the Light that has no end.
I see the darkness in their hearts,
corrupting purest souls,
I see the last days come to pass,
foretold in ancient scrolls.
I see the sides dividing to
the Darkness and the Light,
I see the Demons tempting souls
to walk eternal night.
With strength and faith, I’m unafraid,
and so my path is clear,
to find a balance in this world,
a reason that I’m here.
For all are tested on that path,
to know what’s right and wrong,
temptation in a test of faith
that shows where you belong.
“Forgive me Father, I have sinned,
and strayed beyond the Light,
I’ve seen the evil in their hearts,
the Darkness that they fight.
The Demons whisper to their needs
and rot their souls to loam,
so fickle that they frighten me,
oh please just take me home…
