Angels are Working

Far from their families
For the sake of humanity
Angels are working
To keep the hopes alive

Hiding their bruises
Itching their burns
They are walking on embers
To keep the hopes alive

Gods among us
The sages of humanity
Sacrificing their lives
On the alter of humanity

Their stories will be told
Their tale of sacrifice
Forever they will be remembered
As Angels of humankind

(These Angels are Doctors, Health workers, officials and Bankers)

    I like that. Do you mind my saying it might scan better if you took ‘the’ out of the last 2 stanzas?

      Yeah, actually last 2 stanzas are out of poetry… I should put it inside bracket…

    Really good. These angels of mankind really need more attention and credit. Considering that angels, throughout history, have often come to people’s aid, it’s a perfect metaphor.
