poetry by j matthew waters

the night draws near

no matter where you
find yourself
do not be afraid
for there is always
a higher ground

there is no room
for jealousy
on whatever level
just be sure
to brush it all off
before moving on

forget the powers
that keep on lying
soon they’ll all be dead
rather set your sights
on a higher ground

breathe and smile
how some would say
and certain things
are bound to happen
breathe & smile they say
the night draws near

  1. Well. I quite loved this one. It’s peaceful… yet, very true.
