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
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.
