We were not enough
we starved ourselves as children
hoping that one day,
our parents would show us the way.
But too often we found flaws
in what was meant to be their affection.
So we reached out to the stars and skies
and crafted something ethereal
from the fires we found.
The angels are watching over us.
This was a promise we hoped that would save us.
In temptations of our sins
and increasing loneliness.
We prayed they would guide us
and grant us forgiveness,
to be that what we could never be.
But we were asking for too much
from creatures that weren’t yet born.
Angels will not save you, my child,
it’s time you learnt why the angels fall.
