DEAR ADAM :I will submit

And He put you to sleep,
Cut you open,
Took one of your ribs,
And came up with me.
Thus, I am from you,
Part of you,
A derived being,
And so to you I shall 
submit.
Bone of your bones and,
Flesh of your flesh,
You had to be for me to 
become,
You breathed first before 
I woke
up,
And so rightfully you are 
the
pioneer of me,
The ultimate, the alpha.
Dear Adam,
To you I will submit,
Your authority I will 
respect,
And even though I 
struggle for
equality,
At times even dare put 
you under
me,
At the back of my mind I 
know I
am wrong,
So I apologise, and am 
going
back to where I belong.
He made me your helper 
and not
competitor,
He made me from you 
and not
from Him though He had 
the
capability,
So automatically, you have
priority.
You are the head,
I am your neck,
I support you as you 
function,
Help you turn this way 
and that
To get a better view of 
things and
at times bend to help you 
relax.
I will offer my opinions 
and
suggestions,
But let you make alu the
decisions,
I will every night whisper 
your
name in my prayer,
Asking God to give you His
wisdom and strength,
To lead us everyday,
And I will forever follow 
after you,
After all I am the shadow 
of you.
I will submit,
I will obey,
I will humble myself to 
you,
Therefore letting God's 
blessings
smoothly flow through.
