Angels Fall - Poem by Stevie Taite

Angels fall

Angels fall
Sometimes it is because they are tripped
No one really to show them the way
Easily received but selfishly not wanted
An accident
An inconvenience
Left to their own devises and what they know
They land on dirty grown, grubby nails and knees
and they scramble around in ignorant bliss 

Angels fall
Sometimes it is because they were pushed 
S omeone forgets to polish the treasure
Taken for granted that the ring was binding
A habit 
A convenience 
Left to their longing and desires
and what they deserve
They fall on soft feathers,
that leave imprints of guilty relief,
and they languish a while.

Angels fall
Sometimes it is out of the blue for no good reason at all
No one trips them, no one pushes them
A grip so tight round the heart
They land in  the ocean that is their heart
and it  must be deep enough for all this love
as nothing else makes any sense.

Angels fall
Few are the angels that keep their wings
Please don't look down on us in that way
This flight for you was smooth
We all chose whether we live
cushioned by a cloud or on the ground!
