Jesus Wanted to Heal a Community.

By Stephen Spottswood

Jesus Wanted to Heal a Community

Where there was broken dreams

No support from his Dad

and too short to make the basketball team

To play the cello

and resonate the truth no one could bear

after school she went home to

cigarette holes and no lights in Suitland

Drawing the bow upon the string

melody would be a refuge

and others would notice and take delight

in the law of the land of the healing.
