About the Poem

Sometimes things happen to you that almost rips apart the very thread of you being. I held on to sanity with the help of an angel.

Face of an Angel

To be striped of my virtue
To be striped of my pride
Casts a shadow over my being
That now makes me angry inside

I can't let this happen
I can't turn and run
I can't let the darkness block out the sun

To give in to hatred
To give in to fear
Stands against everything I know
And everything I hold dear

I will hold on to my love
And my passions with grace
And when I lose grip
I will picture your face

The face of an angel
That came to my side
To brighten my heart
And made the darkness subside

it was very touching. my school has lost a couple of people in the past four or five years, and it's painful. i understand what you went through. We still see the faces of these beautiful people everywhere. They are our angels just like the person you wrote this about was yours.

I think this poem is great, it expresses how you feel and when i read it i thought about many things that happened to me too, i really liked the fact you thought of an angel and that they helped you as it brought into action my faith in God, i have always belivevd in God and you brought that up to me again. God gave you the gift of poetry and i think you should use it fully. I thought it was great and that if you have any other poems like it you'll do great!
