poetry by j matthew waters


it is not unbelievable
what you see before your eyes
on the one hand
there will always be abominations
and on the other
unfathomable beauty

where you walk
is what casts your lot
and while some may never see
the goodness of a collective
or the miracles of nature
or the grace of angels
most will find themselves incapable
of inflicting change
where it is needed the most
