For some reason, after taking that quiz, I heard a poem in my mind in answer to the answer it gave me. I think, perhaps, the questions and my mood in answering them made me look inside myself to the place where such things come from in me. It's not my best poem, but it also doesn't make me cringe like my last one did. :-)

What kind of angel are you?

"What kind of angel are you?"
it asked and I thought
I took the test
it said I'm broken
I'm not.

I see the beauty in the stars and the trees
the complex dance of life lives in me.
I worship through study
my power is knowledge.
I stand alone.

Such is my sadness
and my regret.
I want to share my visions
when I have them
another patiently listening
until understanding too overwhelms them.

I suppose, if I'm to liken myself to an angel,
I could only choose Prometheus.
yes not an angel
but who I am regardless
