Angels And Demons

Certainly the title of Dan Brown's greatest novels…
Hey folks! I'm not going to highlight the meanings of angels and demons.

All I wanna do is illustrate few instances from some of our lives, where u can relate to yours too...
And let u decide by yourself
whether u r an
'ANGEL' or 'DEMON'
It goes like this....

When I helped the old lady cross the road,
probably I was an 'angel' for her! !
But when I jumped upon the queue,
to get the top slot at the multiplex
was nt I a bit devilish? ? ?

When I helped my friend complete her assignments
certainly I was the best person she ever had in her life! ! !
when I was mocking her behind her back,
was nt I back-stabbing her? ? ?

When I helped my mom complete her daily chores,
obviously she was proud of me! ! !
But when I lied her to attend a party at the pub,
what was i doing? ? ?

When I helped dad in his official tasks,
he regarded me as his little 'angel'
And when I forged his signature to hide my grades,
dont't u think his comments for me were sarcastical! ! !

When I gifted a goodie to my bro,
he was one of the most elated persons in Milky-Way! ! !
But when I slapped him out of anger,
ofcourse I emulated Hitler in some way

At the end of it,
rather than judging who we are
Angels or Demons...
I would say
we are no angel no demon
just humans
seeking for some sort of finance
to make our life lucrative,
no matter even if our sins are figurative...

    ''we are no angel no demon
    just humans
    seeking for some sort of finance
    to make our life lucrative,
    no matter even if our sins are figurative...'
    Angels and demons mediate between the sacred and the human being and between people.Well written poem..........10++

    That novel certainly was a remarkable thriller
    and your poem is honest, delibrate and compelling.
    All of us awaken to such realisations every now and then.
    Wonderfully written.

    Your poem ANGELS: is for the world and likewise for me, living as a WORD, or as WORDS through you, like your child, or like your sister or brother or mother or friend, and all of us are no more standing in judgment than your poem and no more than you... on its own YOUR POEM is life, perhaps in search of its angel or discerning spirits as it searches it's demon. But i comment only on your poem, not on you the writer as you and your poem are two diferent word merchants; and I am no more than a reader of that WORD... IN ALL OF ITS FORMS... and my comments are no more than a relationship with the WORD as you gave it life as a poem for me to read... your poem ANGELS, is the beauty and flaws of expression of the relationship it had and had for me, as I read it and read it and read it, as the beauty grows old and OR the flaws renew...
    (I thank you for that) . So also, write and read and trust your poems to live true to relationships for your poems, for you, for us; we see, for the WORD of it was and is made flesh witrhout judgment; you see?

    Hey this is a wonderful composition by you..
    I like the argumentative manner in which you expressed the theme..
    Hey! ! ! ! Angels and Deomons one of my fav books! !

    You wrote this one well indeed....
    My favorite part is this! !

    'When I gifted a goodie to my bro,
    he was one of the most elated persons in Milky-Way! ! !
    But when I slapped him out of anger,
    ofcourse I emulated Hitler in some way'...

    these expressions are witty and entertaining too...
    What you say is true.. in some point in our life we may act like Hitlers or Ceasers..

    this is good.. yeah after all we are human..
    Yet angels and demons do lie within us....
    when demons take charge it can only lead to destruction.
    Make sure you let the good forces over power evil...

    and best way to defeat evil is to look at the world with love...

    nice composition.. and like the message too.
    Very true there are no clear cut angels or demons in the world..
    We all human

    love
    shan

    haha yeah true...u picked the instances from common teenage life rather beautifully.........kinda reminds me how i controlled myself and my pen....from forging daddy's signature.... hey u might not believe but thats the only so called wrong thing that i haven't done..........

    very good poem.....we need to stop wasting time in figuring out if we are angels or demons.........

    liked it................. ;)
