Dramatis Personae: Two entities face unique precarious positions. One is a man who is both figuratively and physically at the summit of his life. The mountain of failures of his life is tall, and he is standing on the very edge of his existence. The second is an angel tasked with helping a man similar to its own. The angel needs the man just as much as the man needs the angel.
Setting: A summit out in the middle of nowhere.
Come down from that ledge, my friend
I have nothing left to give this life
This is not how your life should end
Nothing but a bed of broken promises for my wife
I lived a life bemedaled in shortcomings
You speak no truth; life itself is the gift
A release from life for me is forthcoming
If you jump, eternal damnation will not be swift
Why do you concern yourself with my existence?
I am your guardian angel domiciled to you
I don’t have my wings yet, so understand my persistence
I see your plight; if I jump, we are both through
I was on the same ledge but wanted live and slipped
You echo the same countenance as me just before my life was ripped
This was a story with the point and purpose of learning that just because you feel like your existence means nothing, it is not true. Others rely on your existence in so many ways. In the story above, it just so happened that a guardian angel came forward to let the man know of his importance, ultimately saving the man from a very lonely eternal fate.
Let me know what you think!
