the body of Christ

what if
I am an appendix?
that useless component
wondering at the worth
of its own existence
dropped on this earth with
no idea and no direction for
no one knows the purpose
of an appendix and
I am left up to my own
lonely devices
to find myself in

ah, but in God I am never alone

so perhaps this
is the first shuffle of feet
in a long journey
the realization that I am part
of something that is whole
and without me it would no longer
be what it was so
the appendix should not wonder
at whether but at what
is its worth
