An Advice

Poem By Emily Angel

Look into your hearts, O men,
And count the good things
You ever thought for your fellow beings.

See for yourselves the harm
You have wrought for
Your brother in need.

Why are your hearts not melted
By anything you perceive
Around your own selves?

Why do you stay like
Mere gargoyles that never
Had a heart or a mouth?

A heart that was concerned
About someone else
And a mouth that opened
For justice’s sake.

Here, says Wisdom, “Open, O men
Your eyes to see your brother,

A heart to take in feelings of sympathy
And your mouths for yours and your brother’s justice.”

Prudence will tell you must
Befit Wisdom’s advice.

Let the wisest among you
Do so for goodness sake.

Forgetting My Dream

A beautiful dream you are,
Yet I know not what to do.
My heart is in a tumult.
I die for an answer.

Inner Reflections

Never have I told myself
Life is but milk and roses.
I daren't dream

I Love Him

How could this be?
What a sweet sensation can
All of this be?

Let Me Love You

You keep my light burning bright
Even in my darkest night.

You have me safe in your arms,

Regret

I'm drenched by the rain,
Yet I'm not cold.
For I'm freezing inside
Of my heart.
