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.

A Few Visitor Comments

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.

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
