READY, AIM…(#2 OF A SERIES)

“YOU’RE NOT HELPING”

In Rehab* this former C.N.A.

Finds reasons to play…

At his old job

With patients hobnob,

While staff at records write away.

While appreciating helps,

Nurse suggested these newly-trained whelps…

Need  learning

In skills they’re  earning

In patient care without my help!

Chasing wheelchair alarms

Holds no special charms…

If they stand up and fall

Lawsuits take it all,

The reason wheelchairs are armed.

I’ve been on short staffs like then,

Staying on your toes they depend…

On you, the Aide,

Suitably paid

To clients one must always tend.

–Jonathan Caswell

* Rehab….short for Rehabilitation Center.

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?.
