A Make-Believe Story
It wasn’t the Apple that caused Eve to fall,
No talking snake bade her partake;
Metaphors are just as they are described,
What we think to be true turns out fake.
The concept that Man is an island
Is a fable produced by emotions;
Sadness, depression, low self-esteem, fear,
Are just one drop of truth in an ocean.
The stories that form and are stored in my mind
Should be brought out and re-read again.
Times when I thought I was weak I was strong
And the truth is I weathered the pain.
I lust for The Apple of Knowledge,
No different than Adam and Eve;
No serpent need whisper, no Tree is required
To tell myself myths I believe.
