poetry by j matthew waters

the greatest quest


locked inside this snow white cube
I secretly dream of making
my great escape
unfreezing time by traveling
to a distant land
or leaping forward
into another dimension

I’ve been invited to do this before
but always backed down
at the final hour
afraid of heightening my
self-awareness
and finally achieving
my true potential

  1. This poem spoke to me, John. I wonder how much more could be achieved if there is no fear of unlocking true potential ~ what’s holding it back? Something to ponder … for the new year. Happy Holidays to you, my friend.
