She was an Angel and that was also her name. Everybody loved her and her mother the most. Her wonder years were spent in an incoherent giggle and then a smatter of words that ascended to legible sentences.
She was never afraid. No one had instilled FEAR into her, or for that matter SHAME. Born unwelcome into an overcrowded land, surrounded by rat infested holes,the street was her home. She wore no clothes, never had any, never needed any.The street was her world, and all living there her brothers and sisters.
It was her sixth birthday. The celebrations had begun, and as she drew close to blow the candle, the city went up in flames. She wondered,had she blown the candle on time, maybe it would have saved the city from going up in flames.Never understood the riots, never knew she was being raped. Never knew her body, until today.
Suddenly she grew conscious of herself. Understood she was naked, and began to drape herself with the bits she could find.
She had entered the real world. Her Paradise was Lost.
The fall of man is the story of when Adam and Eve lost their innocence and were thrown out of the Garden of Eden. – Genesis.
