In search of Acceptance…
O Desperate Woman, Inspired by: Genesis 3:6-7 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.
“O Desperate Woman”
Desperate woman to become so wise
gave up eternity because of your eyes
A pleasant sight you thought you perceived
foolish you how easily deceived
serpent came and sold you his plan
shame humanity and curse the land
close walk with God is what you lost
that bite did you estimate the cost
sorrow was multiplied and your husband shall rule
To work the ground and tend to it became his daily duel
in the midst of your rebellion God put His plan to work
Savior set on redemption would be earth’s biggest perk.
save mankind from sin and shame was His mission
educate a chosen people and bring in the addition
and Gentiles all are welcome, God wants us all
reap the benefits of redemption after mankind’s fall
and Mercy cover God’s people from head to toe
is the only Saving Grace and soon all the world will know.
