Which Son of Eve?

If you were to be a son of Eve,
which son would you be, my son.
Which of the two are you most like,
           according to deeds done…
               …which would you be, my son?

Are you most like Abel,
Serving  and obedient to the Lord,
Is this the one you are most like, my son
Willing to take the risks of life
         To  do the  right for the Lord, 
        ….and to serve your soul, my son?

Or are you more like Cain,
Envious, selfish, and revengeful, my son,
Is this the one you are most like?
Not willing to change for the good
        Without guilt to inflict pain
          ….wandering aimlessly, my son

You know which I would choose for you
Which life I would want you to live, my son,
But the choice is  yours is to make;
It is your life that you lead
        Your consequence and your reward
           …your salvation or your ruin, my son.

But, remember you are not a son of  Eve,
You are forever a son to me,
No matter which son you would most likely be,
I will always be there with you, my son.
            On your journey of life
                …for you are a part of me.
Godspeed to you, my son.
