poetry by j matthew waters

I pledge allegiance to thyself

here we are vulnerable to the masses
as much as we are vulnerable to ourselves

hitting the streets by any means of conveyance
now just as dangerous as staying put
doors locked & curtains drawn

so much of what’s out there has become
unrecognizable emotion
passions transformed into rage
the latter on the loose throughout the streets

what is to become of all this insanity
and where do we possibly go from here

  1. Difficult times, indeed. Our repentance and tears will bring us back all those things we did not use to appreciate. Merry Christmas, my friend!
