    Come, come!
    My angels that fell
    out of heaven forlorn.
    Did you break a wing?
    on the inclement winds
    or fly to close to the sun.

    Your heavy black brows
    expose your endeavors
    unevenly, rising, declining, lifting
    like the tail of a dog speaks in wag.

    Whether you were thrown out
    of Zion, I can not guess, will not ask.

    Listen, up there!
    I can hear God wailing after you
    his voice is the drum of thunder,
    his eyes are the sun and moon,
    God never sleeps
    and he never fails,
    look at how he calls through this upbraiding storm.
    He is teaching you to be strong.

    Now I wonder what you have done.
    Did you assent to sin like a knowing fool?
    Did you take a disobedient wife?
    Did you leave her behind?
    Did you shake your fist at the lord?
    Were you conquered by pride?
    Did the lord find you were only passing as good
    but was not honestly good.

    Since you can not fly you must learn to walk.
    Chain our arms and we will use each other

    Do not stare at me!
    I am neither prey nor foe,
    not play or player.
    I am only a strong black woman
    leading you home.

    I will help you get back to heaven,
    I am your prayer he heard and sends.
    Make use of me while I am near.

    I interpreted this poem in two ways. The obvious way is that you're actually helping a fallen angel. :D Or, you're a Black woman helping a Black man who has strayed from the path that GOD has designed for him. Either way, beautiful.

    :thanks: for sharing
