When God had rested he looked over the world he created and mankind for which he had made.
The creature of the skies above and those that lived below happy were they as they played.
Under the forbidden tree they laid they found themselves seduced by evil in the shade.
For the worlds first time rain did fall - when God had seen that he had been betrayed.
Cast forever from their garden paradise, to live in the wild untamed earth
For man to toil and labor, and women to suffer the pain of child birth
The gates of eden sealed forever more, gaurded by fiery hosts of heaven
Along with the memory of days of past which number seven
Ever since we have believed that God had given up on man.
We were an afterthought; a mistake; a glitch in the master plan.
We bought into what Lucifer wanted us to believe; which is where it all began
The fallen now took wives, giving birth to nephilim, the flames of hell we did fan
Passion and vices unto which man did fall
The greatest of virtues we destroyed one and all
he sent his son to shed his blood, heading the fathers call
Our souls he did save that fateful day, on a hill on a cross that stood so tall.
For his gift of eternal life, we as men have shared mortal strife
Wars we have made in his name taking innocent life
Our own lust for power guides us away from his loving light
Putting man before God, not even knowing it isn't right
For the truth of it be told, the evil that men do can not be undone
We look to place blame; he is not the one
He loved us so - he gave the life of his only son
The truth is he didn't leave us - we were the ones left him abandoned

I find your witty response amusing and revealing, can not handle the dark, you find yourself to the light clinging. Afraid of the reality of life you may be, but you need to learn to open your eyes and see, only then can you live your life free. You have no work or talent to post, a feeble attempt at a critique at most. You need to get a life can't you see...you don't have what it takes to step to me. If you want to be an artist - then step up, If not then shut the F@#$ Up!

Hey Mestophales, be encouraged, what you wrote is very deep, and only the spirit of God can reveal the truth within the words, I think though that your response was a little off we should not make our response in such a manner Mathew 16:15-17 He(Jesus) said to them, But who do you say that I am? Simon Peter replied You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Then Jesus answered him, Blessed are you Simon Bar-Jonah. Flesh and blood have not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. God Bless You!

Flawed - I am an prone to passionate responses. Actually - the fact remains he/she still read the work, I can not please all of the people all of the time. Thank you for reminding me of the meaning.
