idk-bye

dear adam,
i’ve heard about you my whole life, but you were always overshadowed by your wife. i sit and i think about it sometimes; i wonder if you’re the reason why men are so angry at women.

dear adam,
but you loved her once, didn’t you? you loved her before all that, before you were cursed by the god that you worshiped. did you stop loving her when god called for you?

dear adam,
do you blame eve? do you blame her for taking the fruit, just like the men of today do?

dear adam,
i think sometimes you must wish it was you instead.
( there would be so much more glory for you. )

dear adam,
from the start, we have been blaming eve, but there’s more to the story, isn’t there? see, she was willing to trade the whole universe for you. what were you willing to give?

dear adam,
should we forgive you?
