Angels of Light

by Lefcothea-Maria Golgaki

Fierce dogs, howling in the dark
waiting savagely, to tear flesh apart
ripples of blood, staining the soil
the outspoken actions, journey in the void.
The emptiness and chaos veiling the right
showing no mercy to the angels of light

Yet, they fight hard to resist
a battle everyone knows is meant to be free.
Free of any dignity
stripped of all regrets
the souls of those who wish it
will emerge in the end.

Hope is now renewed
the angels of light are waiting for you.
The time has come, the bells have tolled
the battle has begun, the sorrow will go.
Prayers will be heard, the congregation will kneel
shivers down the spine, a prayer for peace.

Savage voices can be heard, the dust beneath their feet
unleash the beast you have in you, your power of will.
Terminate the contract, lower the head no more
bowing to the evil forces is the option of the lot.
Armed with deadly weapons, soldiers of the night
fight hard for what you have lost, angels of light
