Have Faith - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins

Have Faith

An Angel Fell.

An Angel fell into a dark abyss.

A Human stood at the edge of Darkness and Light with clear seeing eyes and said,

"Have faith"

The Angel fell deeper and deeper into the darkness.

Again, the Human said,

"Have faith"

The Angel continued to fall.

Deeper and deeper, closer to the imaginary point of no return.

Once again,  said the Human,

"Have faith"

The Angel paused and looked up toward the Human and said,

"So, it will be"

The Angel began his flight upward and outward of this temporary darkness.

Back to His rightful Home within the Realm of Light.

Lovely poem on Faith and then the reverting to the Original Isness that returns everything back Home to Light...

You write simple. I love your style...

I love the twist, Mike. In the movies with dark angels, humans are very important to them, I suppose to turn them to the darkness. But somebody always holds out and I love your poem because it has a human helping the dark angel out of the darkness.
This is an awfully good beginning for a story.

Oh Michael, I love it.

So true!

"In the latter days the light will appear dark and the dark will appear light." it's all done with mirrors !

Thank you so much for this profound re-Minder.

Love, maggie

I love this.. In my world angels are just a different form of being. As perfect/imperfect as we.. Beautiful visual prose.

Hello BB:

Yes, I agree. Humans have more expertise with Earth matters and angels with what we would consider heavenly realms. We have much to learn from each other. We are all evolving in a sense. It's a good alliance...angels & humans...much good can be done on this planet.

Kindest & warmest regards,

Isn't it lovely that your faith in a good human to be the one to raise an angel from a deep fall ? Truly endearing...:-)

Faith seems to have been replaced by intelligence and logic's, not a wise move at all in my mind.
