The angel child was given a cross with a mustard seed
the father he loved her and not to displease,
as she was deprived of the apple of his eye.
The angel look did slowly recede
with the actions of the hurting read.
With oceans of emotions
she bound her feet and traveled
inside. The others, they wondered
what those vacant eyes saw
they saw a safe place of love from
her Father God.
She tried, then, to show it, then stow it,
then blast it about in a tantrum
that brought disaster to the house.
Until she then pushed out to see
how to saw the God in the rest.
