Forbidden Fruit

by Novella Kennedy

Is this an Angel sent from above
Or is this deception because he knows I seek Love

He came to me like a thief in the night whose appearance was foretold
To steal the very essence of my mind, body, and soul

You are that apple that Adam ate of Eve
That forbidden fruit, how could I have been deceived

Your words are planted like a tree in the Garden of Eden
Your roots have taken hold and I'm sinking deeper and deeper

Lord, please help me out of this tangled web that he weaves
"There is a lesson to be learned my child, all is not what it seems"

"This is the price you pay when you don't look deep within"
"A world of heartache, betrayal, deception, and sin"

My intentions were good Lord, to love and be loved
"Always remember my child to seek guidance and wisdom from heaven above"

I have prayed night and day
"You took matters into your own hands because you had no faith"

I tried to be patient and wait for your command
"You followed your flesh and played the game of chance"

How can I get out of this Lord, I'm sinking fast
"Hold tight my child, trouble never lasts"

I've learned my lesson Lord, to seek you in all the things I do
"Pray before you pick your fruit, I will always make sure you chose what is
right for you"
