The other side

That night was so sad and dark

I had no one to share and talk

I was walking in the street

My body froze, it was hard to move my feet

A homeless man was singing

Such a sweet song

And I was thinking

What have I done wrong?

My blood turned into hot tears

They were rolling from my thirsty eyes

My heart was melting

I was looking in the sky

An angel showed up and asked

Hey sweetheart why are you sad?

Did he hurt you again?

Did he cause you pain?

Why don’t you leave him and move on?

I looked and asked

How would you feel if you lost your wings?

The angel wiped off my tears

Gave me a big hug and said

“Can you hear the homeless man who is singing a song?”

Poor man has no place to stay

He might go hungry from the mourning 

He has no love nor a darling

Hey little girl you can’t lose what you never had

Enjoy your life and appreciate what you have

You have so much love and care

You have many sweet memories to share

I took a deep breath, smiled and said

How do we know what the good is

if we don’t experience the bad?

Now I know how to live

Life is to live and people are to forgive

  1. Reblogged this on Loving Me, Too and commented:
    How to describe the way this reaches into my heart, into my past? It helps me love the emotionally wounded child living who lived in my woman’s body 13 years ago. I know angels were trying to speak their wisdom to me back then, shaking their heads that it was so hard to get through to me. I am eternally grateful to them for keeping me safe as I returned to my senses. Grateful also to these “Falling Thoughts.”

  2. Afterall, Life is nothing but a hurdle-bridge over the RIDGE between the tall mountains of BIRTH and DEATH, on which one experiences a lot of falls and raises… Words Warrior has tried to rake out this secret in minimum possible words. Congrats!!!
