Wholeness

"Do you want
to get well?"
he asks.

Afflicted
all these years
with no one
to help me.
The water stirs
another
gets in first.

These others here
competitors
together,
losers
together.
Hope has brought us
despair grips us!

"Get up
and walk!"

I cannot,
yet at his command,
new life
and hope
surge through me.

Now to walk
no more
in selfish
sinfulness
but in his way.
