Angels We Need - Poem by Babatunde Aremu

Often we gaze into the sky
Longing for the descension of the spirit
Oblivious of the angels around us
We discontence the God-sent in our midst
Going afar to seek for the invisibles
Angels are around us
We often pretend to be unaware of them
They are our relations, neighbours,
Colleagues, acquittances, friends
They are beyond colours
They are beyond borders
They even transcend tongues or creed
Let's embrace them wholeheartedly
They are the real angels we need
