We are all born to

We are all born to sin

we all do

by age ten

we done lied and even stolen too

by age fifteen

for most kids

have seen things that weren't meant

to be seen

and those sights cannot be rid

death, murder right in front of their


love and pain

sex then shame

heartbreak that literally makes the

heart ache

hatred and fears 

laughter then tears

no freedom from the curseof

Adam and Eve

don't you see?

The Tree of Knowledge

of both Good and


this will be the death of us

this I trust.
