The Quest For Eden - Poem by Liam Hughes

For you to pass my mind I do desire
To soothe my head and quench my fire
As man grew from the dust
He began to suffer in his lust
But as his once true heart became a liar
And sullen from his need to conspire
From his head the thoughts do thrust
Unforgiving, defeated and without trust

While in despair his spirit does fail
But while it withers and becomes frail
His senses turn towards a fate
That might undo this unending spate
During the reprisal which does entail
Him breathing life into what was once stale
Sees his heart suddenly elate
And its beating resorts to a faster rate

    When our clothes become soiled and our minds darkened by corruption, we sometimes yearn to return to that glistening Garden.
    A lovely, meaningful bit of work, Liam!

    Really lovely poem with a new twist. I still can give new twist:

    Satan came a technology park
    His new wares to sell
    Perhaps he was cloth merchant
    Eve to him victim fell

    Though I am not religious my inspiration was the story of Adam and eve being banished from the garden of eden and trying to relate the story to the struggles of life but being able to overcome those struggles
    Thank you for asking
