This is a poem dedicated to my childhood friend, John. An accidental fall left him a quadrapalegic.

The use of my mind is all that is left of me

Something has paralyzed me

Challenge now faces my daily routine

Changes all around me

From deep within my soul I want to scream

"GOD, PLEASE LET ME WALK AGAIN"

Eyes filled with pity surround me

Anger me, and fighten me

WALK simply out of this room

WALK something I will never do

Yet my mind shall forever be in use

My mind shall forever be in use

Use of my hands, my legs, my sexual spirit

So quiet now, no one can hear it

Yet the use of my mind is banging and booming inside

Crying and hiding and begging to rise

And WALK

WALK simply out of this room.

It begins it. I have been here before, as I could tell.
For finding: that myself I have reborn
But not seen, is forever to persist
To gather around the seasons of space with the everlastingness of event
With the layered energy as it is made of things.
Into the logical fiber of the tribute: a thought arises
And stays on course, slowly progressing, not done.
By fear: the fear thatís been since forever,
In the same space the inseparable normal good
Being passed through mankind
Came accessible to me: I fade into remoteness
Reviewed by Melissa Mendelson (Reader) 8/2/2008
I'm very sorry to hear about your friend. This poem carries such strong currents of emotion, such depth, and so much soul.
