An angel in the gray tried hard to do good. Stay straight, stay righteous, they told him he should.
An angel in the gray did not want to fight, but was always provoked for doing what was right.
An angel in the gray had such a big heart, but temptation and sin were tearing it apart.
An angel in the gray did his best to stay pure, but was always sucked in by worldly allure.
An angel in the gray did not belong, every decision that he made turned out to be wrong.
An angel in the gray just wanted to shine bright, but a world full of darkness was dimming his light.
