poetry by j matthew waters

unfollowing the leader

it’s taken hundreds of years
for eyes to open
and hearts to swell
still the correction
has not been fulfilled

strong forces push & pull
changing men
back into animals
reverting to basic needs
orchestrated by the alpha

the crucifixion was only
the beginning
thousands of years since
human trafficking
and genocides prevailing

to the child we say
yours is the generation
destined to start the process
(of not undoing but)
repairing broken mindsets

january two thousand twenty-two
