BEFORE WE FELL ---

Before we(Adam and Eve)fell
We were in heaven
Yet in ignorance.
There was no good or no evil,
No god or no devil;
Nor was there any woman or any man.

Then we fell.
Things fell apart:
Man and his god and their good;
Woman and her devil and their evil;
Shame and honor;
Here and there division and difference.
Like the seed falling to the ground
To rise as the tree to commune with the sky,
Like man and woman falling in love
And rising to the peak of silent joy
We fell to the earth.

Before the fall there was no pride.
But we now have some pride in knowing the truth:
In the fall is the rise,
And the bow has to bend for the arrow to dart.
