Blind

(Part of my E100 series of poems)

John 9

They called me in
Said, Tell us now,
Is it true?
What we’ve been told?
Tell us now
The who and how.

I replied,
All I know
Is I was blind.
All I know
Is now I see.

They argued
And grumbled.
How could this be?
It does not fit
What we’ve perceived.

So they refused,
Refused to see.
They would not,
Would not believe

What was
Before their eyes.
What would
Change their lives.
