Prelapsarian Moments

Prelapsarian moments
Just before the fall.
I’ve lived a few of those
Just before the crumbling wall.
Not all walls are meant to confine.
Not all are meant to defend.
Both sides deceive.
Both sides pretend.
Confusion inevitably arises,
And erases the innocent mind
By replacing them
With the corrupting kind.
This is the cycle life has known,
And forced upon each other.
One’s own intentions are more important
Than loving their fellow brother.
But Christ has put His hands out
Among the living and the dead.
“Since you won’t, I must.”
And His blood was shed.
The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit
Together will renew our mind,
Where we will have eternal peace,
And evil is left behind.
