adam thinking

she
stolen from my bone
is it any wonder
i hunger to tunnel back
inside desperate
to reconnect the rib and clay
and to be whole again

some need is in me
struggling to roar through my
mouth into a name
this creation is so fierce
i would rather have been born

    This poem captures exactly how any human created by adam would feel. Although that is true, this insults how Gdd created humanity and implies that adam disagreed with him. But every1 has a say, an opinion, and a way of putting them into words. So i give you a thumbs up, not a thumbs down.
