Angels in Our Midst

Angels

Angels in Our Midst

Angels often
In our midst
Their wings are love
That gives us life
They come
Often in forms rejected
Their minds and heart
Pure Acceptance
They see the yellow
Of the sun
They see the blue
Of the ocean
Seeing only love in the eyes
Of hatred
They have no notion

Pure as children
They are not burdens
Their strength in joy
As an oxen’s yoke
Lifts apprehensions
Selfish people
Want them destroyed
Death in the womb
Creates a void
Without their presence
We will not see
We will miss
The forest and the trees
Selfish love
A form of evil
Destroying souls
No longer people
People learn
To perservere
Through love and hope
No more fear
The handicapped child
Not a weight intense
A gift of life
It’s heaven sent

-Miguel Perez-Santalla

I have been around many handicapped people. In all cases I have drawn inspiration from their struggles and the joy they bring to my life.

I cannot imagine a world of only perfect people. We would have a miserable selfish existence that would destroy the beauty of self-giving that is often brought about by their existence in this world. When a person gives often the rewards are greater than we can ever foresee.

I am bringing back more of my inspirational writing due to popular demand. I hope that my return to this foray is not an insult to the professional writer and more than anything else that I can make my readers smile and touch their hearts. I have myself felt a void after having taken a hiatus from this part of my writing career. Recently I realized that if I reject this part of me then other side of my writing also loses the ability to create.
