My Angels

Dear Reader,

Happy Valentine’s Day.  Let us not forget that the most important person to love is yourself.  The poem I am sharing today, reminds me of how important it is to love ourselves, happiness is not external to us, it comes from within.

Everyone goes through a hard time at some point in their lives.  I pray that we all have those earth Angels as I had who helped me get through mine.

My Angels


Heartache, sorrow, trauma, despair,

All of this, my battered soul can no longer bear

I finally fell, fell, fell,

Deep into the pit that was a self-made hell


I am utterly broken, I am torn,

Wishing that I had never been born

My pain is exposed for all to see,

I am beyond caring what happens to me


I am ready to embrace death by my own hand,

The pain is too great and I cannot stand

I feel so unloved and all alone,

Wouldn’t it be better if I were gone?


Ala, it was not to be,

‘It is not your time’

The universe gently said to me

I look up from the pit and I see a faint light,

There is hope; I can make it, a chance to fight

I slowly, painfully, claw my way back out

With the help of my angels to show me the way,

I climb up bit by bit, I even shout!


My angels cry because I want to throw my life away,

They show me how precious I am to them

They remind me that I am the brightest gem

Their love for me brings me back to the light,

And they hold on to me with all their might


I realise then that I am not an empty shell,

That my pain is just my own hell

I could step out whenever I wanted to,

I just needed someone to help me through

I am grateful to my angels who are always there,

Waiting in the side-line in case I fall

And I know that they truly care,

This is after all, true love’s call
