poetry by j matthew waters

places I’ve yet to be

I thought I was in some place that I was not
how the mind bends reality leaving you
rethinking everything you’ve learned thus far

how many lies must I tell before becoming truth
mind beginning to believe anything I say or do

I’ve been told there is an ocean on the other
side of this magnificent purple mountain
the very one I will have surfed endless times

october two thousand nineteen
