one day, an angel was sent down to earth.
she was excited to be given such an extraordinary opportunity.
the second her feet kissed our planet,
her wings began to deteriorate.
everything she’s ever known about heaven
drifting away from her like watching sand fall through your fingers.
with tear filled eyes, she fell down to the ground,
and watched her divine wings evaporate.
what happened next is unlike anything the angel has ever seen or felt.
her wings created a color so ethereal that it took her breath away.
in that same moment, she stopped crying.
she wiped her face, inhaled deeply, and exhaled hope.
her purpose became clear.
to be able to endure the pain of her human life,
she must let go of the very thing that once defined her.
now, what if I told you everything she’s ever loved since that day
has brought her pain?
and what I told you she still exhales hope?
