poetry by j matthew waters

never in your lifetime

the great experiment proved
to be nothing but a farce
so many years & so many lies
if you want to find the truth
forget about dwelling on the past
instead try looking inwards

with ever greater speed & frequency
history continues to be rewritten
the most recent far from reality
but rest assured eventually
things will be gotten right
unfortunately never in your lifetime

  1. A very truthful and good poem. I think looking inwards is good advice. I agree with your sentiments here, although I think 2020 marks a threshold to something better, even though it may not seem like it right now.

    The Great Conjunction of Jupiter Saturn, which occurs every twenty years, on December 21 this year is at 0 degrees Aquarius, the beginning of a new cycle of Great Conjunctions in Air Signs for the next 150 years or so. I think this will be positive, moving away from what has been a very materialistic age since the mid 19th century.

    The pangs we are experiencing right now are very difficult but somehow we have to get through to the other side. So I think it will be in our lifetime – and sooner than we think. I will reblog.

    • Thank you so much Francis for responding to this piece and sharing your insights. I believe all of us are looking forward to reaching the other side and in my mind December 21 can’t come soon enough. Take good care.

      • I can’t promise a paradise soon but we should soon start seeing more promising signs and the December conjunction is highly symbolic. Take care.
