Band Of Angels


i saw a band of angels coming down from the sky
a band of angels to save you and i.

they covered the sky as far as the eyes could see
the sight so beautiful
that it hypnotized me.

they were like the angels that they talk about in books
wings so wide and white
showing all their strength and might.

the angels came to do battle for all mankind
and they did not come with swords.or weapons of any kind

they came with the words of peace and love
sent down from GOD above.
for they know that the devil comes
with lies and deceit,
in hopes that your faith, they will defeat.

they will offer us riches of diamonds and pearls
and even offer us, control of the world.
they know that mankind is full of greed
since the beginning of time
it has been seen.

the band of angels know that this
battle will be won
for they will fight from dawn to setting sun.
they know that the human mind is full of greed
but the love in their hearts, can not be seen.

now the confrontation is finally here
and the battle is about to begin.
which is stronger
love or sin?

this is when you must search your heart
and decide what you want to do.
are you going to let the devil
make a fool out of you?

we must join this band of angels
who fight for our rights.

so darkness will not
win this perilous plight.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
