'An Apple Pie'

'And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof,
then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods,
knowing good and evil.'
Genesis (3: 4-5)

My grandma always used to say,
'What you have eaten makes your day.'
It took some time to comprehend,
To get the clue of what she meant.

As nights changed days of different seasons
I grew in strength to weigh the reasons.
To understand the sin of human sons,
To see through life and how it runs:

Forbidden fruit and serpent's lie -
Are basic keys to why we die.
God's broken rule, lost Paradise -
Why 'apple pie' does taste so nice.

Truth often comes as a surprise.
To be like God, one must be wise.
To recognize the devil in disguise,
To know the truth apart from lies.

My Grandma always used to say:
'What you have eaten - makes your day...'

'Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.'
(Matt 26:26-28)
