poetry by j matthew waters

crossing the river

though I feel sick I am not ill
this ever changing weather
playing games with my frame of mind
keeps me tossing and turning when wide awake
making me move onward
and upward
as I delve deep into
my most precious dream state

I often wonder who’s going to protect me
from thy enemy

how many times do I have to remind myself
to step away from the window

we’ve crossed this river many times
and will cross again if we must
enjoining many hands
together stepping like a human net
resurrecting life by conquering death

march two thousand eighteen
