Plan Thwarted

What if the fall of man NEVER happened?

Imagine sunny days — every waking day to leap to,
And thunderstorms at night cuz they’re fun to fall asleep to;

And friends with no enemies and smiles all day,
And no working to get by — instead we just play!

Food? There’s enough and it’s good and it’s healthy,
And there’s no middle class and no poor — we’re all wealthy!

We all do what we’re built for and love it a lot,
And we share what we have, what we build, what we’ve bought;

There’s nothing that’s evil, no tongues that are dirty,
And ninety years old feels like fifty or thirty;

Kids play in parks with no teasing or fighting,
No punching or pulling or shoving or biting;

Nobody feels left out and there’s no comparing,
No jealousy either, no longing or staring;

No lustful thoughts, no hate and no anger,
No worries for safety — cuz really… no danger!

No stealing, no robbing, no coveting your neighbor,
No time-outs cuz everyone just rocked best behavior;

No sickness or depression, no pain and no sadness,
No yelling, no screaming and shouting, no madness;

No lying, no cheating or deceiving, no fraud,
You can’t do those things while you hang out with God;

Imagine all of that if your sinful mind can,
I think that was God’s plan that was thwarted by man.

inspired by thoughts of what the world might have been like — if we hadn’t fallen…

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
