Evicted from the Garden

Victim of beguilement

Embodiment of all living


And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. Genesis 3:13

And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

Genesis 3:20

Giving Up…

Giving Up--Decuain poem
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2014

I wrote this poem, sadly, because of a conversation with a person who is dear to me that was experiencing feelings of giving up because of recent circumstances in his life. As we talked, he asked me what empathy meant.  I explained it’s meaning.  His tears moved me to realize that is what he was looking for, and not finding it, he was too weak to continue his search.  The poem is written to express his feelings.  However, I have hope that my actions and prayers will be the helping hand he needs at this time.

Victim VictorThere are two choices—which will you choose?
Your choice makes a difference—either you win or you lose.

In these two words—you make a choice to be,
Bound by one or by one set free.

Victim or Victor–which one are you?
The difference is in letters of two

A mentality of ” I’m” A mentality of “Or”
What do you say is at your core?

Are you a Victim or Victor? The choice is yours today
What will you think—What will you say?
