TREE OF KNOWLEDGE—OF PAIN


TREE OF KNOWLEDGE AND OF PAIN

by Jonathan Caswell

Adam and Eve in Eden

Knew not the agony of bleeding…

But when thrown out

Of the Garden no doubt,

They and we learned that knowledge exceeding.

The mighty King Solomon discovered

That knowledge’s thrill as uncovered…

Has limited thrill

That tends to chill,

As familiarity deadens the senses!

Levels in pleasure and pain,

With knowledge and evil the same…

Each level will do

‘Til the next nuzzles through,

Enticing us on in the game.

Spiritual levels aside,

Evil progression by pride…

Eggs us on to try

The next pleasure high,

To feed on the spirit ’til died.

—-Jonathan Caswell

  2. I really love poetry, Poetry helps me express my own feelings. I usually write my own poetry in a scratch paper and a small notebook. .`:;`
