THE OPPOSITE SEX.

It started in Eden long ago with Adam and Eve,
When God Created them to each other to cleave.
They lived in blissful harmony,
As innocents, whose hearts and spirits soared high and free!

The serpent tempted Eve the first,
He set out to do his very worst!
Then he tempted Adam too,
He thought to set God's Plan askew!

Continually, down through the years,
He's whispered lies... and played on fears...
Until The Plan of Love that God Proposed,
Has almost disappeared... as minds are closed!

They blame each other all the time,
Sinking further into a bottomless pit of slime...
Wrongs committed by both sides,
Can anyone ever turn the tide?

So many hurts - imagined and real -
How can anyone be open to love, when the instinct is to conceal?
To be derisory... sceptical... hard... cold...
Can any of us possibly break the mould?

Centuries of use and abuse,
Of pulling apart and continuing God's Plan to refuse!
Poles apart - and yet the same,
The final refusal - same sex relationships to claim...

So what of God's Plan for me and you?
Can we turn the tide - and find a way through?
Can we walk tenderly through life's maze...
And win our way to happier days?

Has God through Jesus,
Left a key?
A sense of commitment... love ... and care... mutual respect -
And a sense of humour to set us Free?
