@ Eden's Children - Poem by Jordan Legaspi

Eden's Children (chapter II)


Adam and Eve
-the beautiful story of birth and death
what man and god alike has to give
to unfold the beginnings of truth;

Cain and Abel
-the beautiful story of love and hate
between status and power; name and title
to unveil the face that hides from the light

Tower of Babel
-the beautiful story of wisdom and pride
of prince and lord; ruler and citizen; priest and noble
to unlock the bars of the heaven's side

Joseph and his brothers
-the beautiful story of vision and suspicion
thus wife against husband; children against parents
to unmask the characters of personal and social mission

Moses and the nation
-the beautiful story of The Law -the blessing and the curse
thus their rise and fall; unity and division
to unload their vise and virtue unto the skies

Jesus and the world
-the beautiful story of love, faith and charity
thus his lordship is over the new and the old
to define the was, is, to be for us to be free
