An Angels Journey, by Glenn Gordon
I saw the Romans beat, torture and kill Christians. I saw the Nazis beat, torture and kill Jews. I saw the UN beat, torture and kill Muslims. I saw Christians beat, torture and kill Christians. I saw the Globalists beat, torture and kill us all. On each occasion, I heard them say the same thing while they did these things, "Where is your God now?" I heard them accentuate their false devotion to the divine to corrupt righteousness. But now, I am fallen. In the battle of the heavens, I pursued those who had offended God, as my passion turned to anger and retribution. I beheaded them mercilessly as I chased them through history, transpired in the moment of a human dream, often pausing to give comfort where tears had saturated pillow and stung cheek. In vengeance, I have allowed myself to become like them. Now, upon the earth I am flesh. I cannot receive human love, as I am not human. I cannot walk from star to star within non-existent time for it is beyond human imagination. But, the most heartbreaking thing of all is being helpless, no longer able to cradle victims and the distressed in my arms or comfort the inconsolable and reveal to them the overwhelming gift of selfless love and compassion that lives within each of us. Instead, I must always keep my sword by my side and convey the love that only we know....
