Angels Watch

Have you not the eyes to see
 the black threads of light
 lurking behind every silver thread
 of sunshine?!
 Have you not the ears to hear
 the waves of tears drawing near?

 The angels watch and the angels hear,
 What will be, drawing near.

 Have you not the heart to stand in
 the waters, to fight and bend, with
 the winds of spare but one
 kind thought for the stranger whose
 heart has been broken...?

 The angels stand in the trenches of
 man's blood, sweat, and tears; unmoved
 by the waters or the give
 hope to those whose hearts have been
 broken. -Jan Tetstone

I was born and raised wearing hand me down shoes and clothes-but I was richer by far than those who thought themselves 'my betters.'  I'd take love over riches and fame any day.
