poetry by j matthew waters

the fortitude & the will


choose wisely what you remember
if that is even possible

despite the accuracy of the moment
the further back you go
the more vivid it seems to be

there is an aum in your future
I can feel it
one in which forces you to slow
things down
opening the possibility
of moving further
than you’ve gone thus far
in your short time here

from there you can launch yourself
as long as you continue to possess
the fortitude & the will
