God created us. We created chaos.

Our Creation

by Leftkansas

The beginning. God created
living souls. His thoughts translated.
Humanity consecrated.

Satan soon offered forbidden knowledge, from a fruit tree.
Promising humanity control over all they see.
Ultimate deception, assuring them God's they would be.

God soon removed perfection
from Earth. But gave protection
to all without rejection.

God gives affection.
God gives connection.
God gives direction.

Yet we disobey.
Create our decay.
Just live for today.

Christ asked us live with faith within
He asked to turn away from sin
If we do, we in end will win

Trust all you have contact with as you want them to treat you
Always be kind in what you say and in what you do
Do honor marriage vows and learn how to always be true

Set good example for all
In doing so you stand tall
In judgment, you will not fall

Pray to God each day
Show others the way
Have courage, what may

Watch out what you crave
Careful road you pave
