TITLE: Fruits of My Existence

My life is a story
Starting with a seed
Fertilized by reality
Growing among weeds
My species is rare
Unique in creation
God had a plan
For making me his invention

Constantly sinning
That is my nature
As trees need pruning
So does my nature
In the garden of life
I am the yield thatís expected
To germinate from the soils
Where all is contaminated

Nothing is perfect
From the nursery I grew
To the forest I live
Where faith is by few
And love is fertility
That feeds my roots
In my heart and my soul
And so it goes

That everything happens
That usually happens
When erosion fails
And the rains prevail
And the plants grow
And life is clearly observed

The creationist smiles
At the obviousness
Of the undeniable
Conclusion that is
The fruits of my
Planned existence
A confirmation that
God is indeed
The creator of all
That is seen and unseen
Dating back
To the Garden of Eden.

I think you did a good job on this poem. It is easy to read and has a logical progression from beginning to end.

I especially loved the first few lines...

My life is a story
Starting with a seed
Fertilized by reality
Growing among weeds


Good job.
