poetry by j matthew waters


be not afraid of the knock on the door
it’s been in the offing ever since you were born

if you remember the crib
there is something special inside you
awareness at such an early age
is a clear sign you’ve been here before

reaching various stages in life
is sometimes easier said than done
but the underlying truth will always remain
how you’re destined to be one in the end

hell on earth is as real as heaven itself
and oftentimes you wonder
what keeps you coming back

march two thousand eighteen
