Genesis

It seems since the beginning of time

we’ve been the cause of your downfall

Created as an afterthought

for your entertainment

our bodies the shiny apples

we were never supposed to feed you.

Your morality untainted

until our weak minds

persuaded you

to consume

the object of your desire-

What God thought you weren’t good enough

to have.

And now we walk smaller,

covering up our sin-full skin

heads bowed to your words,

each word we speak

disregarded to save yourselves

from our persuasion

We can only do wrong

yet we walk smaller,

cover up,

bow heads

to apologise

atone

for the reality that

in our natural states,

we are

sin 

incarnate.
