The Empty Promise Of Hope

The angel’s hollow halo can only be filled with lies,
For the yellow of the circle can only mean cowardice.
I have prayed and prayed
And nothing good has come forth.
But here am I.
She has received eternal silence
For a life filled with good intentions.
While the silence in my life has become deafening.
The empty promise of hope has become just another of God’s lies,
Yet still we spend our lives with scabbed knees.
While the angels dirty wings remain untouched.
