Listen, sisters and brothers too, there is much I have in common with you.

We have eyes and ears and lungs and hearts, and legs and fingers, and other parts.

We live, we die, we laugh and cry, we look above and all see the sky.

We need food to eat and water to drink; we fall asleep, and sometimes we think.

We share some commonality in father and mother, Adam and Eve; then closer too by father Noah and his three sons, Ham, Japheth,and Shem, and each of us is descended from one of them.

We share the occurrences of being born and of being possessors of DNA inherited from Adam, number 1.

We are all offered an Adamic DNA clean-out by Jesus Christ, Godís begotten Son.

In that very place is where we stand together or stand apart, according to whether OUR MUTUAL FRIEND does, or does not, reside in our hearts.

There is no doubt that the Holy Spirit is a Friend to us all, but some of us continue to have DNA from Adamís fall.

When we have not yet invited Jesus to enter our hearts and to forgive us from that sin, He resides in the atmosphere around us, in our outside then.

But when we do ask forgiveness of Him and invite Him to enter our hearts, He enters our lives and there He forever provides the Seal of Salvation; He then resides with us in our inside.

He lives with us continually, knowing all that we think, or say or see. He is patient and loving and guides us through all of our lives, to our very end, as always, always our very good Friend.

He lives with me and He lives with you, OUR MUTUAL FRIEND, IF weíve asked Him to.

Very well written. You make many good points in this piece, and it is not too long or wordy. Thanks.

This is a lovely poem with beautiful rhymes.

I think it might stand out more if you put the lines in a traditional verse, then double space between stanzas. Like this:


We share the occurrences of being born
And of being possessors of DNA inherited from Adam, number one.
We are all offered an Adamic DNA clean-out
By Jesus Christ, Godís begotten Son.

The words are lovely and the message divine. Keep writing, you have a passion that really shows n your words.

I like the meter and just the feel of your free verse poem. Very nice, right on topic and on message.
