How do we look to outside observers as we live our lives, especially those of us who do not grow, re-think our approach and change from our experiences?
What About Angels?
From Denny: Humanity spends a lot of time agonizing over "what other people think" about them. What if we are observed by what we cannot physically see - yet sense on a deeper level?
What if angelic beings are real and just exist in a veiled close dimension of time but are not present in our exact time and space? How do you think they might perceive our daily lives and choices as they are witness to our time here on Earth?
Forever playing the "what if?" game - and other virtually useless mind wanderings I am prone to do like most writers and poets - came the following poem concerning humanity's free will. How many people have you observed who, sadly, live like this? I've known far too many who keep recycling the same unproductive choices and often contemplated if they realize how they appear to those around them.
Let your love light shine!
when the angels cry for us
when our inner light dims and cools to lunar blue
the angels are crying our saddest sorrows
unnoticed, standing off to the sidelines of our lives
they watch and wait; they wait and watch: wondering...
patient upon free will acting... choosing... losing...
a lonely soul, so weary of feeling alone, reaches out
this lonely soul rushing forward without consideration
having chanced upon a mirrored self... reflecting
the lonely soul quickly attaches its desire to the other
wishing... hoping... nurturing fantasy into reality
that strangely never comes... breathes no life
disillusionment arrives to the lonely soul
as reality too soon reveals the unwelcome sight of
beauty turned inside out... surprised ugliness... unexpected
a sudden gust of wind arrives, the fantasy explodes
like a mirror shattered upon the ground
the pieces of glass like the relationship... sharp... jagged
illusion and one-sided reflected the pairing
two who could never join as one
only one engaged... not a relationship complete
downcast, sad... unrepentant... refusing truth
the lonely soul rushes on without consideration
seeking another mirrored self reflecting
the angels mourn for the lonely grasping soul
who remains unseen... unloved... overlooked...
acting... choosing... losing... frantically re-cycling
when the light dims all around us... in us...
and the air cools to midnight lunar blue
the angels are mourning love not yet found... unfulfilled
the angels wonder: will the process cease and die?
will the lonely soul quit chasing their reflection?
