poetry by j matthew waters


i should have put myself
in a position to save him
should have thrown differences aside
and made a case for rising
to the occasion

held back by clear skies
i kept to my routine
realizing he probably was right
this business of saving
is misunderstood

  1. Wow, this little piece got me really thinking. Love it.

  2. While thought provoking, “Should have’s” can be so painfully crippling, especially when it comes to saving someone else.
