A letter from Adam : addressed to EVE


Dear Mother of all Creation

Please forgive me for not protecting you,

Or teaching our sons to respect you ,

Please forgive me for blaming you : Genesis 3:12 (And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest me, she gave me of the tree and I did eat)

Forgive me for not manning up

And for betraying your trust

And looking upon you with lust

And not defendingi you

And for treating you like an object

And being objectionable

And not being objective

Or seeing things from your perspective

And always trying to picture you naked

Forgive me for not making eye contact

Forgive me for not listening

And for distancing

Please forgiveve me for not

Giving you the right to vote

Or for dashing your hopes

Please forgive me not acknowledging

Your part in the war

Forgive me for calling you who're

Please forgive me

For not standing up for you

Please forgive me not looking in your eyes

Or worrying about what's between YOUR thighs

Please forgive me for hurting you


Emotionally too

Please forgive me when they

Took your jobs after that world war

I should have fought them

Like the white folks who fought for

Black folks freedom. during the

Civil War

Please forgive me for 'catcalling

And staring when other men do

I should. stare at them

and make them feel uncomfortable too

Please forgive me for letting our daughters in Africa

Suffer at the hands of evil nen

Please forgive me for letting women globally

Live like chattel

Please forgive me for holding you

when you were trying to be set free

Please forgive for being angry

When you weren't that into me

Please forgive me for allowing

A child to be censored for

Boys not not controllling themselves

Please forgive me for making you responsible

For.own actions


Please forgive me

For not giving you what all of us should have:


Of choice

And life

And work

Right wage

Same monies

Please forgive me EVE

for not teaching our sons how to act

For laughing at them

When I should have given them a slap

Please forgive for allowing our daughters

live in a world


They don't feel safe

Please allow me to Be a positive change

And let it start today

I'm not sure why I'm not getting notifications of your writings, but I'm not. Another HP glitch. Anyway, I have written often about abuse. I wish I knew how to eradicate it from our lives, but I don't. All we can do, as writers, is to raise awareness. Well done, you!

Laurinzoscott (author) from Kanab, Utah on March 28, 2020:

Thanks Mark and Romeo

For the read and comments God bless you both...I pray you stay continously blessed

Romeos Quill from Lincolnshire, England on March 28, 2020:

Far too many women don't get the recognition they deserve or their contributions appreciated but this poem of yours surely addresses this lack admirably. They brought us into the world and some of their daily sacrifices go unrecognized - the one's with a quiet and gentle Spirit are certainly worthy of respect. Thanks for the read M.T. Peace out.

Mark Tulin from Palm Springs, California on March 28, 2020:

Nice letter and I enjoyed women facts as well.

Laurinzoscott (author) from Kanab, Utah on March 27, 2020:

Ethan Kilpatrick from Ocean Springs, MS on March 26, 2020:

Laurinzoscott (author) from Kanab, Utah on March 26, 2020:

Thank you FlourishAnyway for your kind comments.. And I am glad this piece touched you...and you know about Henrietta...wow, and the writer Rebecca Skoot us it ? Amazing...gave a great one

FlourishAnyway from USA on March 26, 2020:

This was so amazing that it brought tears to my eyes. Your poem was incredible and the additional information you provided capped it off perfectly. I also thought of Henrietta Lacks, one of the most important contributors to modern medicine -- although the circumstances of her contribution were absolutely horrendous.

Laurinzoscott (author) from Kanab, Utah on March 26, 2020:

Thank you Ethan.. Yes having a daughter made me re-evaluate myself for sure

Ethan Kilpatrick from Ocean Springs, MS on March 26, 2020:

A truly amazing piece of poetry that had me reconsider the way I treat women on a daily basis. Great job!

Mitara N from South Africa on March 26, 2020:

It's very honourable of you to ask forgiveness, and taken the steps for positive change.

I thank you for highlighting how women were apart of invention and creation that not many know about.

The strength of a women is very similar to mother nature, their attempt to shield, calm all storm and goes far more beyond.

Laurinzoscott (author) from Kanab, Utah on March 26, 2020:

Thanks for reading and commenting...yes many wives went with their husbands to fight besides them, women have done a lot they dont teach us is schools...have a wondrrful dayJodah

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on March 26, 2020:

This was a good apology to all women on behalf of all me,. Thanks for sharing those interesting facts too. I didn't know over 400 women fought in the civil war disguised as men.
