Cast out, for our selfish need

They wished to gain
Every thing
When they had all
That they would need
But have we ever been 
With what we need
Instead we betrayed 
The provenance
For our promise
In so doing
Throwing away
We denied paradise 
For the wicked desire
To know
From our first breath
Wisdom comes with pain
The gates closed
Guarded and secured
To prevent our entry
How are we simple creatures
To ever be
Returned to that state
Where we are new
Born without
The knowledge of the flesh?
