Eden Rise (Poem)

Alive and well in the land of the living
A secret garden in my head

Oh how exquisite are Eden’s spring waters
As I’m stuck here slaving in the valley of the dead

Deliver me Lord
from the cheats and liars
Don’t let them get to my head

With jeers and catcalls
their mocking gets louder
Each day is worse than the last

Don’t throw me to the dogs
Don’t leave me out here like this
Barking their hate and nipping my heels

A race of gluttons
A generation of swindlers
All bent to get their fill

Fill me, Yahuah
With your glory and splendor
Water my soil and strengthen my roots

A bountiful tree in the Garden of Eden
Amid stacks of dead logs in the ashes and soot
