The Angel's Fall - Poem by Joseph Oliver
I twist as I fall,
Reaching out to Heaven,
I descend into an inferno of pain,
I can no longer resist his wicked call,
What have I left to gain?
For now the Angel has Fallen!
I burn and decay,
Reaching out to your mortal soul,
I try to trick and deceive,
'Follow Me and gain power! ! ' I falsely say,
But it is your choice to, my voice, obey!
Your Love has killed the darkness in me,
A heavenly light I now can view,
I cast away Lucifer's sway,
No longer his wicked desires I long to see,
No longer his devilish will I will do!
I now follow the Living Lord's Graceful Way!
I watch you live out your mortal life,
Knowing we'll be together someday,
I have earned my wings with my love for you,
I will end all your untimely strife,
Do not, for me, pray!
Just do what your heart and soul tells you to do!
I twist and soar,
We're all Children of God,
Heaven's gates will open soon,
Protecting the Mortals upon the world is ne'er a bore,
We Angels also walk upon the Earthly Sod,
We are as golden as the Moon!
