Angel Against All Odds

by Anne Engelen

She walks the most difficult path in life

One battle after the other

Strife after strife


Struggling to cope with what life's dishing out

She’s an example to make any man proud

Comprehending God’s way is getting harder each day

How can I understand the pain, the sorrow and desperation

she has to endure?

Especially a soul like hers, so pure?

She’s an angel against all odds

Touching so many hearts and souls

She’s the purest of them all !


Author's Note: for my little sister in spirit!!!

What a beautiful poem, I love "She walks the most difficult path in life/One battle after the other/Strife after strife" Another great one. An almost Joan of Arc image to it

I think we're all angels trying to fight against the odds... I have always pictured angels as heavenly and stress-free. This poem paints a different picture. Not that of a peaceful angel, but nevertheless, beautiful. =)

I just have to add, the poem "humanizes" angels in a very good way. =)

Everyone needs an angel in their life... and everyone needs to be someone elses angel as well. I love angel poems too! Nice Work.
