Another gloomy day has begun,
another day full of pain,
Head stooping I beg
when will I be redeemed
from the hands of a tyrant?
I walk aimlessly to school,
happy that my teachers do not hurt me
although they treat my stuttering brother like a plague
A knock on the door,
the teacher grants her permission,
she glides to me with the grace of an angel
the nobility of a princess,
hands me a ticky ,
"buy some sweets"
For a moment, for eternity,
I see her walk out the room,
so magnificently, so beautifully,
I feel redeemed,
I feel the beauty of love and life in my soul.
I know I will return to a dreary home,
but I have hope in my heart!
An angel, by a simple act of love,
has given me hope!
That angel lay in bed today,
waiting to soar the skies again!
In the meantime, I fly,
for the wings that angel bestowed upon me!
