Before You Ate the Fruit (a poem)

Before you ate the fruit
The world, it once seemed kind
But then the hard truth set in deep
Weighed heavy on your mind

There’s no more blissful innocence
You can’t unsee it all
Realities, brutalities
The outcome of the Fall

So hold on to the hope (that it’s a)
Temporary sting
Hold on to the peace
That only Christ can bring

And when your days are dark
Remember who’s the light
Rest easy in the Lord
Your battles, He will fight

“I am the light of the world; he that will follow me shall not walk in darkness.” (John 8:12)

“Whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world.” (Ether 12:4)

“I will fight your battles.” (Doctrine & Covenants 105:14)

Cast Out Your Net (A Poem)

“Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward.” -Hebrews 10:35

Cast not out confidence
Cast out your net
A sale or success
(see) what you can get

Failure might happen (but)
Without the risk
Your net stands no yield
You’ll never see fish

And though disappointment
Can bring about shame
Mistakes give experience
It’s part of the game

Cast not out confidence
Sow in your field
In time you can harvest
Reap what you yield
