Caged Angel

Why did you choose to forsake his protection?

Wings ravaged from the touch of sin.

Forced to walk among the dead on this living tomb.

Created by love for the sake of serving love.

Accepting the truth of a deceiver you have sealed the doors of a cage absent of walls.

Tears of defeat beset you like an ocean.

The prize possession of a selfish master should not be the slave of compassion.

Remember thy name sake.

Fulfill thy purpose.

Pray for the gift of flight.

Before your guerdon is the timeless fuego.
