Religion: Verse I

Kinsey Peterson

The first sin was to trust.

God has created such pure beings

That they couldn’t believe any

Of his other creations 

Could be flawed.

Eve trusted the snake and 

Adam trusted Eve.

They trusted so purely 

That it became evil.

The first sin was never to 

Bite the apple,

It was to be pure enough 

To trust the snake

That gifted it.
