poetry by j matthew waters

a child is reborn


she survived the dark forest
with unimaginable courage
her recovery spectacular

though the past is incomplete
its mysteries will slowly dissolve
replaced by translucency

according to testimony of others
she is here for good reasons and
destined to do something special

  1. Beautiful words, John…

  2. I think surviving something dark can make people special sometimes, and maybe turn out to do great things too. I really like this! 🙂
