Best Poem of James Weldon Lane

The Angel Truth

Don't expect angels to walk by your side
Unless you've been worthy with nothing to hide
Don't expect angels to stand guard for you
If you're doing evil while hiding from view
They do want you pure and mentally clean
And physically able to say what you mean
Don't expect angels to brighten your door
When cards you are playing aren't helping the score
Make angels smile by taking a stand
And trying to help all the people you can
Don't expect angels to do all the good
When you're only wishing and knocking on wood
Do expect angels to march thru the mud...
