poetry by j matthew waters

Take me to the river

Not so random acts of madness
attack all corners of the world
leaving me with a bluesy feeling
I can’t seem to overcome

I barely hear your raspy breathing
passing through undefined lines
your outreached arms
nearly invisible in my peripheral
your cries indecipherable
beneath a rubble of mistrust

Who will show us the way
to safely reach the River Jordan
where its healing powers
give light and rebirth
to those seeking to start anew

november two thousand fifteen
