“Who I Am Now” Poem

Who I Am Now

By: Ashley O’Hare

I looked up to you for so long

Now my neck is aching.

I raised you up-

Showed you what it really means

To have trust and to love.

You knocked me down;

Made me all too familiar with the ground.

Now I’m digging in my heels.

I’m rooting for myself-

Forcing my soul to grow.

Today you passed by ,

Walking slow

Eyes cast low—

Is this truly how we are now?
Are you going to pretend I no longer exist?

Or did you just not recognize me

When I am no longer under your boot of control?
