Are You An Angel?

What IS an Angel?

By Cezanne LibellenPublished 11 months ago β€’ 1 min read

What makes an angel?

Just an angel once?



Most of the time?

Can you get away with being downright awful

Most of the time

If you are sometimes an angel?

Can you get away with being horrendous

(Just sometimes)

If you're often an angel?

Can you get away with it


If you're mostly an angel?

Nonono, you've got it all wrong.

Human angels are almost always good

And their bad deeds and sins

Are usually not as bad

As those who are not really angels.

You can do angelic things

But until you live up to the name

You will never be a real angel.

    I'm a devil disguised as an angel, lol! Loved your poem!

    It's all too easy to mistake a person for an angel. Certainly we do meet the ones who'll be angels one day, but as your poem reminds us, it's better not to confuse the two. In particular, you're very right to observe that an outward display of goodness does not make an angel. Even an hour before he fell, Satan was the most beautiful angel in Heaven. But fall he did. In Paradise Lost, Book Three, Satan also deceives the archangel Uriel with a false showing. John Milton explains to the reader that this is possible, because not even an archangel is proof against hypocrisy. Only God knows what's truly inside every heart. As usual, you poems have made me think this morning! Many thanks, Cezanne!
