Lost Angels

we’re all angels in this world, but we do not know because we forget how much we have to offer, the gifts we can give are all drowned in our own pursuits of what society demands from us, and that is the same society that begs our altruism, but how could we find our hidden angels again when the same path to altruism is rigged with competition, popularity masked under each act of charity, how could we tell the authentic from the inauthentic any more in this world of fabrication, I yearn for the angel we were all born with that began glowing right in our mothers’ wombs and then into her soft embrace, the angels are on earth, but they’ve lost their paths, because we forgot about them.
