Tempted by the Tempter

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.

  1. Excellent poem! If anyone of us wonders if we would have sinned in Eve’s situation, all we have to ask ourselves since we know better – have we sinned?

  2. I loved hers and your poems…. It’s always easier to point a finger at someone else than look at our own actions. Very insightful.
