Word Prompt – Angel

Better men than me have caved to adversity

Losing their way in life’s forms of perversity

But, I may be among the first to openly agree

That the angel on my back gets the best of me

As she speaks to me on what’s truth and right

Daring to share a bit of nobility into the light

That is the darkness that we all live in

And me, myself, I always find me slipping again

Back into the muck that is my embodied sin

Though I try my best to be good and pretend

When I look in the mirror I see that stranger’s face

And wish that I could elude mortality’s embrace

Someday, I might just find my way out of here alive

But, until then they pay me enough to keep taking that dive
