poetry by j matthew waters

alive like the butterfly

the moment you start looking back
and analyzing every misstep
chances are you are not where
you want to be
and all the hopeless wishing in the world
will leave you even more wretched

consider the beauty of the butterfly
and ask yourself if your life isnโ€™t worth
just as much
and maybe then you will understand
moving forward is the only option
with or without a migration map
