HEAR THE ANGELS WEEPING Poem

HEAR THE ANGELS WEEPING

Hear the Angels weeping
For the lost innocent souls
Killed in a wave of violence

Hear the Angels weeping
For the lost souls who
Believe in a Pro-violence Alliance

Hear the Angels weeping
For the lost souls who are unable
To stop the violence with compliance

Hear the Angels weeping
For the innocence lost to all
The children of the world

Hear the Angels weeping
For those who gave their lives
To protect the boys and girls

Hear the Angels weeping
For those who have turned their backs
To the light preferring the dark underworld

Hear the Angels weeping
As they pray for the lost souls
To turn from darkness to light unfurled

    Good write Kathy, what an intractable problem, even here we think back on easier more connected/family days.

    Happy: Thank you - not one of my best jobs, but I'm so filled with frustration that the words were not flowing as well as they usually do and my thoughts are more jumbled and upset. Hopefully something better will come later.

    Hi, godsprincess,
    Hear the Angels weeping
    For the innocence lost to all
    The children of the world

    Thank you for this poem that calls us to raise our voices (and votes) to demand changes. We should not leave it to the children to save themselves.

    It is a problem Ocean especially with the current political state of my country and the world. The death of the Roman Empire should be an example. Thanks for reading.

    Laura - I know. My heart breaks when I think of any God's little ones being killed needlessly. I know He has a plan and I try not to question it. Hopefully a lot of good will come out of this. I believe in the second amendment to prevent tyranny and dictatorships. However, I do NOT believe in the right of citizens owning assault weapons or worse - nuclear bombs. One of my own family members said that citizens have a right to use any kind of weapon that our government uses - including a nuclear bomb! OM Gosh - what insanity has taken over this civilian population?

    Kathy, I would not agree with your own self-assessment of this poem, despite your frustration. It is good, and if it exemplifies what you were/are feeling at the time,....all the better. Some of my best was done "on the fly." And I am in full accordance with the frustrations exhibited here in this expression. purple heart

    Joy - I agree - however our country is so deeply divided at this point and time in history that I despair. Right after 9/11 the country came together as one. Why do we need such a disaster to bring us together by others outside the country. Our own children are dying - why doesn't this disaster bring us together - I don't understand. I personally am not asking citizens the right to own a gun - just not mass destruction guns such as assault weapons, etc. If they want a rifle or pistol (with proper screening - both prison record and mental) for hunting - protection - target practice, etc. fine but why on God's green earth would they need an assault weapon!

    Correction - I am not asking citizens to GIVE UP THE RIGHT TO OWN GUNS. I missed a word there somewhere.

    Thank you Christian for supporting me so well on this write. It isn't in the usual style I do and I didn't feel I got everything as clear as I should have but then - I never feel 100% happy when any of my poems. Thank you for being a good friend.

    Well this morning there was another school shooting - this time in the popular gun toting state of Texas. 7 killed and a dozen hospitalized or more. Please pray for God to intercede for our children. It appears our civilization (I use that word loosely) is incapable of taking care of our innocent souls.

    One of your very best Kathy. ....The short lines get right down to business in the rhythem sense. The content is also nice, as it is coupled with a nice edit and form. That is just a technical review, but the heart and soul of this poem is truly beautiful. ....hope you are doing well Kathy......purple heart

    Thank you Christian. Every time there is a school shooting now - I will probably bring this poem up again. When will we learn. When will we protect our children? So upsetting.

    I know Happy Chatty - hopefully with school being out for the summer in the south and west and soon in the north - maybe - hopefully maybe things will calm down a little. Too bad by Aug./Sept. when it starts back up some kind of plan could be in place - but don't count on it. Or there will sadly be another year of our children being slaughtered.
