Jesus died for everyone’s sins,
But everyone died for Adam’s sins.
Eve endeavored to forestall this
By giving birth to the perfectly innocent child,
But she could not keep him from corruption.
We cannot escape
Even one simple mistake
Like the butterfly whose wings cause a hurricane
Chaos is born all around us.
Yet, I still wish to say that I am sorry:
It’s the only power I possess.
