Grounded Angel By Desiree Cady

Grounded Angel
By Desiree Cady

The devil appeared
Such an evil, dark one
Told me his plan
By the end I knew I was done.

I had met a force
Sure to break me down
In a pool of my own blood
I was sure to drown.

He said, " You can't be this innocent,
You can't be this sweet.
I will deny you of your wings
And you can join me below in my hellish heat."

He proceeded to attack,
Stripped me of my wings..
But I sensed God was present
So I didn't feel a thing.

He thought he had won
As he took my weapons of flight
But I fooled him..for even a broken winged angel
Can still stand up and fight.


I am a 33 year old mother of two beautiful girls who have been my saving grace. After a brutal attack a few years ago, I have been plagued by PTSD. After the attack and a few suicide attempts, I vowed to tell my story and help inspire others to get help and to know that they are not alone. 
I am currently wrapping up two manuscripts for publication and am set to be published in an upcoming anthology that will come out mid - November.
