TITLE: Second Adam

Eve then deceived
And ate the fruit -
Then gave Adam…
New mankind’s root

Sin that needed
Clothing to hide
Behind God’s question:
“Why, do you deny?”

The stage was set
For all mankind -
For now was needed:
Was peace of mind

Seeking God’s truth
Were those elite
And they did suffer
So much defeat

Abram to Samson
David to Paul…
Were men who God
Used to make known

And trials suffered
But not in vain
For God provides;
He does sustain…

As Heaven’s star
Did usher in
The Savior – Christ:
Hope for all sin

His truth proclaimed:
“My ‘Abba’ – King”
Caused strife and vexed
Man’s ‘religious’ thing

After the fact
Did mankind see
That Christ is God:
Salvation’s plea

Christ died for sin -
And took man’s place,
And fulfilled promise
Of God’s great grace

Lovely flowing and beautiful in its depth and understanding. God bless~

I think this poem is quite lovely. I enjoyed how you started at the very beginning and carried the reader to the beautiful ending.

I did stumble a tiny bit over the rhymes Paul and known and found some lines confusing. Although I think some different punctuation might have helped with that.

But I also know that punctuation can be a style choice. Usually poetry isn't my favorite genre because I feel like I'm missing something important that my brain can't hear. And though I did probably miss some of the subtle nuances in this piece, I could still feel the passion in each word. You did a great job with this by leaving me feeling loved and blessed. That's always a great way to leave a reader.

Wonderful piece, for wonderful Peace! This really exalts the name of our Christ. Thank you. Sorry I don't have the critiquing skills, for this genre. Just keep on writing, you're doing great.
