Start of his six month woe

Was damage neglecting Big Toe…

Though not twenty-three,

He foolishly

Went without socks to and fro.

His sense of reality muddy,

Went around with a soaked sock bloody…

Leaving red dots

In many spots,

His wife thought he was nutty!

Distracted by a catheter bout,

His mind shut the bloody foot out…

Thus it’s forgotten

Till it went rotten,

He kept on pushing it out.

The infection bothered both legs,

He was walking on broken eggs…

Made of glass

Till it came to pass

That his legs cut out and he crumpled to the floor–useless legs!

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 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 hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
