Easter Wings

our lord created us from wealth and store,
he give us life and guidance, but we never given anything back to him.
until we get’s old, then we will realize why human get old and sickness,
it is a punishment for taking to much.

  1. Is it punishment from God or maybe the man just feels guilty? It's natural that one day you will get old and possibly sick. In the poem the lord wanted to create man "in wealth and store" not that the man took these things. I think it shows man isn't perfect when the shape of the poem is thin these are his low points in life but in those times he looks to god to pull him out of it. He takes flight out of the low points of his life.
