Forbidden Fruit - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

tree of knowledge

i am the tree
and the fruits
yours to pick

praise and glory
yours to keep

much better
for me to stand
each leaf my gratitude
to you in helping me shine

the fruits they are
your success

i stand in your honour
in your praise
and dance to your plan

forbidden apple
it is in the sacred
corner of our hearts
the everlasting eden
sanctuary you share with us

yes the snake though
keeps slither
between us
lying that your fruit
is my own fruit
my own achievement
mine to keep and eat
