for angels : who sing of harmony

the angels are coming
i saw them in my dreams
they’ve heard our prayers
and listened to our screams
to end denial and educate our shame
i’m not the only one to take the blame
along with another lashing

the life line doesn’t let us die
but puts the puzzle pieces on the table
till the riddle has an answer
and that is all we have to do
to listen to the silence
and hear the angels sing
