She is known as the Mother of the Living
but yet through her was Death’s coming
She was part of the great construction
She brought great destruction
She was Eve
Eve was so naive
Because she had no concept of sin
She was tempted by the worst, who gave her a big grin
Babies before they can talk know of temptation
She was fooled by the Utmost Depraved’s lie that was artfully spun
Sometimes we forget that and just blame
It was Eve who was tempted, shame, shame, shame
But it was Eve who came face to face with the Serpent
Sin did not exist before that instant
Satan was so sly
He preyed on her weaknesses, so cunning was his lie
She was tempted by the Tempter
Yes, she did make the bluster
that changed everything and made the world we knew
But how would you do?
Everyday we are challenged
Choices we have to make that world plunged
us into. We have to decide what is right
and what is wrong. Be the light
Or turn to our own selfish desires
Digging deeper into the fires
We say, ‘No one is watching’
Objects become mysteriously missing
We say, ‘Life is not fair, I should get what I deserve’
The wife at home believes you are on a business trip and believes that your love for her is preserve(d)
We say, ‘It won’t hurt anyone’
A little money a carefully swept under the rug, how did that happen?
These are the lies the Serpent tactfully spins
No one ever truly thinks that they are sins
And all the while, we keep the blame on Eve
‘Oh she was so naive’
Do you not see what is right before you?
I’ll give you a clue
It’s called giving in to temptation.
But always remember, God is here for your salvation.
Below is my favorite of all time poem. It is called Free Fall. I memorized it four years ago and if I practiced I think I can do it better than the girl who did it on the video. Enjoy! Also I wanted to remind everyone that October 8th is bring your Bible to school day.
