Neighbor

A Poem By Julie // 2/1/2010

Neighbor
Where?
Where am I?
                                                                                                    “At my inn. You were unconscious
                                                                                                               When he brought you here.”

He?
                                                                                                                                       “A Samaritan,” 
                                                                                                                                    The man spits
                                                                                                            “At least he left good money.”

What?
What happened?
                                                                                                                      “Don’t you remember?”

I…
I do…
Robbers
Beat me up
Men                                                    Passing by                                                                                                              Other side of the road

But still…
A Samaritan!
I’ve cursed
                                                              Samaritans
                                                              Hated them

                                                                                                             “He bandaged your wounds.”

I was touched
                                                              By a Samaritan!

Ceremonially unclean
Worse than
Pigs
                                                                                                                      “You would have died.”

Saved by
A Samaritan!
Why?                                              

                                                             Maybe
                                                             Maybe,

I’ve missed something
                       Something big
 In Torah.
