One of us will die. One of us will lord.

I put my back against the water

say a prayer,

I turn to the sky

there you are,

An angel on high

playing his part,

I look you in the eye

you draw your sword,

One of us will die

One of us will lord

Ah, I can't really see the picture!
Also, this reminds me to finish AT for some reason?I'm catching up on reading.. :)))
I like this idea of a demon cast into the sea coming to fight angel who only plays his part while praying demon seems to have goals...

The picture's not important; I couldn't find a good one to capture what I was seeing. This isn't really about angels and demons, but it's what I gravitated towards as I came to completing it. It's more about the righteous and the honest, where the righteous descend from the clouds, thinking they know better, having that sense of entitlement, whereas the honest wade through the shit of everyday life, making the best of things, standing up for themselves.
Thank you for reading, Keke-bear!
