And so Lucifer peeked at God’s plans for Eve.
He then realized the honor She would receive.
After being the light,
The brightest and best,
Lucifer was to be dethroned.
In envy he was shown
How he would lose his place
Before the face
Of the Holy Trinity.
The destiny God made
That though Woman would rise
Lucifer should behave.
In rage he disfigured himself,
Desperately trying to beautify himself.
Twisting his teeth, parting his hair…
Chewing his cheeks, nothing was spared.
God watched His angel deform,
Asked the seraph to reject the vile.
Lucifer stared back and said with a smile,
“Not so long as Woman is born.
Never will I accept She is my superior,
To only You I am inferior!
If You are to make Her so far greater…
I want nothing to do with Her maker.”
God’s love was crushed by Lucifer,
And His sorrow disgusted His angel.
Lucifer left Heaven.
His past and all he left abandoned.
Lucifer dwelled in hell,
Renamed himself satan.
He planned to thwart and rebel…
On the very day Eve saw Eden,
satan snuck into the garden…
Slipped past Adam…
“Hey Beautiful… want an apple?”
