poetry by j matthew waters

the power of the river

it wasn’t my idea to swim downstream
though I was thrown into the fray
one might say
by no choice of my own
my mother creating a vacuum
by pulling me toward her
tricking me into naturally pursuing her
by simply going with the flow

  1. Resonates for me in a completely new context today. Funny how good poetry does that.
