About the Book

In Theatre of the Mind, the International House of Poetry put together a compliation to showcase poets from around the world. Simone Nikkole's poem, Broken Angel is included in this book.

Broken Angel

a broken angel
without a wing
pretty helpless as it seems
until one day
she got the courage to learn how to fly

broken angel
without praise
dying in self rage
was it inflicted
on oneself?
or part of someone's rampage
this broken angel 
will try to heal

broken angel
under a spell of mistrust
to tare people away because of disgust
no one to hear the vent spells
inflicted on hard, despondent walls 
what to do
one does not know
until freed from this lonely cell
