O Adam, the angels bowed before thee,
the father of all whose creation they pined
would unleash chaos, bloodshed and tyranny
but omniscient Lord said unto their kind,
dear all, what I know you can never grasp
and they obliged save the disdainful asp!
   

In due time with two yearnings he was cast,
one for his beloved Eve and the other
for his Lord, to this unforgiving earth
beginning the line that brought you and me!
Now those urges are haunting all of us,
to seek a home and yearn to be complete!
     

We have survived an Ice age and Noah’s ruthless flood,
yet have I justified my breaths and life in this world? 


Sequel to Genesis Part 1

  1. Masterly written and that question…have I justified my breaths and life in this world? is the one that is haunting me right now, daily tugging at my sleeve should I for one moment forget it…Why am I here? What have I still to learn? Am I being true to myself? You have indeed opened a Pandora’s box with this one…😊

  2. “Now those urges are haunting all of us,
    to seek a home and yearn to be complete!” — you’re so right about this. These lines speak to our deepest desires.

    We have survived an Ice age and Noah’s ruthless flood,
    yet have I justified my breaths and life in this world?” — what a great question to pose and one that I suspect we’ll never have an answer to in our own lives until those lives are done.
