Raymond A. Foss Poems

Accepting Limits by Raymond A. Foss

God said we could do so much
could walk in the garden,
eat of the fruits of all creation
save for one tree, a fateful test.
One which we failed, in trying too hard
to be like God. Forgetting the creator
made us from clay, breathed life into us
made us special, precious, out of dust
We still have the choice, to use the consequence,
the results of that bite, of the forbidden fruit
to do good and change creation
to make the world more of the heaven on earth
that it was at the beginning, in the garden,
when we walked with God
