poetry by j matthew waters

your next iteration

even with all of the advances
we remain virtually the same
our emotions controlling our actions
be it falling in love or waging war
in nondescript places

habits seem impossible to break
be it religion or sleeping in
night owls constantly devising
early birds wreaking havoc
on your best laid plans

so there you go making room
for the new & maybe improved you
running into newfound friends
[and sworn enemies]
in virtually all the same places

  1. Yes, the cycle continues endlessly despite our opportunities to break it.
