Our Brain



Until just recently
The model of our brain
Was one of a machine
With many parts contained.

Each had special functions
And roles in which it played
In how we lived our lives
And actions we displayed.

If a part was broken,
Damaged beyond repair,
We lost those functions too,
A model of despair.

Now a newer model
Is growing more each day,
A model that proclaims
Our brain will find a way.

It states we can rewire
The circuitry it has,
Not classically framed,
But flexible like jazz.

It shouts that there is hope
Beyond our wildest dreams,
From physical complaints
To psychologic themes.

‘Plegics have recovered
The use of every limb;
Before they had been told
Prospects were all too grim.

This means that even brains
Continually can grow
And hope indeed is real
In neuroplastic’s flow.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
