Angel


See that girl?
the one with no hair?
the one who gets made fun of,
by her so-called friends,

See that man?
the one on the bench,
the one who eats from trash?
the one who is ridiculed for being 'lazy'

See that woman?
the one on the street corner?
The one who gives it up
every night?

I wonder if that little girl,
is angel?
I wonder if that man is angel?
I wonder if that woman is
an angel?

What if their just here to show us,
how hard life can be?
How would you feel,
if you knew you were,
torturing an Angel?

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
