~John 9



O, I see! I see!

You were cast out,

weren’t you?

Washed your eyes

in the Siloam Pool


whereas I was blind,

now I see.


Your people,

even parents,

turned their backs

on you,

denied you,

you with your new-

opened eyes.


Of course you must

have contempt for 

for what you left,

what you lost.

on this strange 

and lonely way


Two thousand years 

away from you,

maybe I can see 

your sneer 

as the fear 

that once it was.
