Fallen Paradise

"I always seem to have a vague feeling that he is a Satan among musicians, a fallen angel in the darkness who is perpetually seeking to fight his way back to happiness." - Henry Ellis

“Angels are bright still, though the brightest fell.” - William Shakespeare

Chapter 1

Concerto

My heart banged against my chest and the nerves made me shudder. Walking over to my harp I sat down and positioned the mic to a more comfortable position.

"Hello" my voice echoed around the hall. "I'm Isabelle and today I shall be singing Heal the world by Michael Jackson." As I finished talking the audience clapped. Soon they died down and I took a deep breath.

"There's A Place In
Your Heart
And I Know That It Is Love
And This Place Could
Be Much
Brighter Than Tomorrow.
And If You Really Try
You'll Find There's No Need
To Cry
In This Place You'll Feel
There's No Hurt Or Sorrow.

My fingers strummed the harp's strings delicately.

There Are Ways
To Get There
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Little Space.
Make A Better Place...

Taking a huge breath I let my voice soar and I closed me eyes. This was who I was. This is what made me, me.

Heal The World
Make It A Better Place
For You And For Me
And The Entire Human Race.
There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me.

I relaxed into the rhythm and melody of the song.

If You Want To Know Why
There's A Love That
Cannot Lie.
Love Is Strong
It Only Cares For
Joyful Giving.
If We Try
We Shall See
In This Bliss
We Cannot Feel
Fear Or Dread.
We Stop Existing And
Start Living.

I wanted nothing more than to sing this song forever.

Then It Feels That Always
Love's Enough For
Us Growing.
So Make A Better World
Make A Better World...

Heal The World
Make It A Better Place
For You And For Me
And The Entire Human Race.
There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living.
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me.

I let my thoughts fade and I focused on the song.

And The Dream We Were
Conceived In
Will Reveal A Joyful Face.
And The World We
Once Believed In
Will Shine Again In Grace.
Then Why Do We Keep
Strangling Life
Wound This Earth
Crucify Its Soul.
Though It's Plain To See
This World Is Heavenly
Be God's Glow.

We Could Fly So High
Let Our Spirits Never Die.
In My Heart
I Feel You Are All
My Brothers.
Create A World With
No Fear
Together We'll Cry
Happy Tears.
See The Nations Turn
Their Swords
Into Plowshares.

We Could Really Get There
If You Cared Enough
For The Living,
Make A Little Space
To Make A Better Place...

Heal The World
Make It A Better Place
For You And For Me
And The Entire Human Race.
There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me.

Heal The World
Make It A Better Place
For You And For Me
And The Entire Human Race.
There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living.
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me.

Heal The World
Make It A Better Place
For You And For Me
And The Entire Human Race.
There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living.
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me.

There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living.
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me.

The last verse was coming soon and I felt my voice getting stronger and braver.

There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living.
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me.

You And For Me.
You And For Me.
You And For Me.
You And For Me.
You And For Me.
You And For Me.
You And For Me.
You And For Me.
You And For Me.
You And For Me.
You And For Me."

As I finished the song there was a momentum of silence in the hall, then suddenly the crowd exploded into a loud burst of cheers. Everyone was clapping and standing up. My face began to get red and I was beaming with pride, of course this moment was nothing compared to that while I was singing. But it was fairly close.
