The diagnosis and treatment plan was presented with austerity
When I suggested an alternative natural remedy,
“You’ll still be sick” was said arrogantly
Well, I knew a second opinion was a must
Someone so rash, how could I trust
So, I reached out to two more medical professionals
And both confirmed the scientific diagnosis of the first
But they explained all the treatment pros and cons patiently
And put my mind at ease
Healing is a process
It takes prayers of course, but in science we also need to rely
But science is not enough
Healing requires compassion and love
As Jesus demonstrated to the crowds as He traveled forth 1
We heal better, when we know someone cares for us.
1 Matthew 14:14, And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion.
