poetry by j matthew waters


there is poetry in sadness
and vice versa if you like
a far cry from madness
residing inside a troubled mind

to imagine happiness
arising from darkness
is a beautiful possibility to those
in search of inner peace

to the poet an opening
is ever present for all to find
regardless of any circumstance
no matter how slight
