Storyboard Text

  • hello there, allow me to introduce myself. I am John Milton, a very influential poet of the 17th century.  I would like to take you on a very personal journey.
  • ''On His Blindness'' is a poem i have written that looks at the situation of my loss of sight. This loss made me reflect on my purpose which made me turn to god in order to understand my greatest shortcoming 
  • Because i have overworked my eyes due to all my reading and writing, i had completely lost my eyesight by the age of 40. This took away my greatest passion and made me lose my faith 
  • England in the 17th century
  • My lord is just want to serve you at the best of my abilities. I want to be able to show you my accomplishments once i die. Why must i be deprived of my light at such a young age?
  • On His Blindness
  • patience is the answer you are seeking. God is complete, he doesn't need your talents. in fact, those who accept their fate and trust that god will guide their lives are his best followers. 
  • When I consider how my light is spent ere half my days in this dark world and wide, and that one talent which is death to hide  lodg’d with me useless
  • God has a plan for everyone, many already do his bidding everywhere around the earth, he has taken that job away from you, but you need to stay faithful as you will too have your use one day !
  •  though my soul more bent to serve therewith my Maker, and present my true account, lest he returning chide,“Doth God exact day-labour, light denied?” I fondly ask.
  • But Patience, to prevent that murmur, soon replies: “God doth not need either man’s work or his own gifts: who best  bear his mild yoke, they serve him best.
  • His state is kingly; thousands at his bidding speed and post o’er land and ocean without rest:  They also serve who only stand and wait.
