Eve’s Story-“Don’t Talk to Serpents” – An Autobiography


I am participating in the “Fast Track Bible Study” at the United Methodist Church…

One of the questions asked “to know more” to write a short autobiography of Adam and Eve… or the Tower of Babel…. I had some fun with Eve – and thought I’d share here what I wrote. I had fun writing this….Enjoy!

Eve’s Story- 
An Autobiography

I find myself sitting in this vast fruitful garden, contemplating exactly what just happened. It seems like such a whirlwind. One moment, I am in bliss, unaware of what could be in my world. And the next – I learn that there is such a thing called evil- and that I also need to cover my body…

Looking back… I blame the serpent. All was fine until I talked to him.

While my father had told me to stay away from that tree with its fruit…that nasty serpent told me it would be fine! But, my own wonder and the words of the serpent lead me to pick that forbidden fruit. And it tasted like no other! At once, I realized that I wanted to share the moment with Adam…. It only seemed right! And…he accepted.

Nothing felt wrong about it…Well….wait… Maybe a part of me wondered what God might think. But then once we realized what we had done… we were ashamed. So, Adam and I hid, hoping that God wouldn’t find us…

Guess I was wrong…and now my world has changed forever…. Advice – Never listen to a talking serpent.

“Within the depths of our mind, we are battling the duel of light and darkness…good and evil…love and hate…” Between Light and Darkness is Ariana’s most recent collection of poetry… Cherry’s frequent message she delivers throughout her work is, “The journey through the darkness, back into the light.” Her hope is to let others know that they won’t be in that place of darkness for long – that they indeed can reach the light once again…She also wants her readers to know – that – it is okay if they find themselves in that bleak blackness…Sometimes we feel guilty for going to that dark place – but it is necessary to conquer the demons that battle our souls…. Other books that Cherry has written include "Only If" and "Twisted Paths Poetry." Her epic tale, “Only If,” won the “Reader’s Favorite Award” and a 5 star review…and her collection, “Twisted Paths Poetry,” received a 5 star review from Realistic Poetry International. She has been writing ever since she was a child. Some of her inspirations include Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Frost, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, Christopher Pike and Shel Silverstein. Ariana writes a variety of genres: inspirational, humorous and horror – although writing horror is one of her favorites…. She was 12 years old when she read Poe for the very first time – which inspired her epic poetry tale, “Only If.“ During other parts of her free time, she enjoys taking photos and creating art. Her “day-jobs” include working as a church administrative aide and reporting for a local newspaper.
