Helpmeet
 
We pursue them like prey...
seeking to control their every way
as a biproduct of a curse for our own disobedience 
many eons ago.
 
He, passively broke the covenant
and defied THE WORD...
He inherited rule
over our thoughts
our hearts
our actions...
 
We, actively broke the covenant
and defied THE WORD...
And inherited
pain,
long-suffering,
and an insatiable desire to own him...
 
Our new bond...
incessant toil,
and conflict,
and wondering WHY.
 
-T.D. Jude
