A Poem on Sunday Gen 3:4-5

The world tugs and wrenches at my heart.
Slyly it lures and entices.
Whispers and cajoles.
“You will know the truth.”
“You will not die.”
“You will be like God!”
“Bite, chew, enjoy!”
“Savour the taste.”

The world still tugs, wrenches and lures.
Double minded heart.
Dissembling mind.

The drag and pull relentless,
But life is at hand.
The Calvary comes,
Spirit descends.
Still at war …
… but my side is winning.
