poetry by j matthew waters

willing


we walked a mile
to the well and back
mother explaining along the way
there are some burdens
not meant for others to carry

of course I’d no idea
what she meant (at the time)
but her words stayed with me
becoming a part of what
I was meant to be

how I love to share
such stories with strangers
if only they’re willing
to open up themselves
by going to the well and back




november two thousand eighteen
