“Building Character” Poem

Building Character

By Ashley O’Hare

I’m tired of building character.

I’m tired of getting stronger.

“Just pull yourself together.”

“Hold on a little while longer.”

My watch is not counting down; 

there is no end in sight.

My soul is being crushed

in the shadows on the dying light.

Days are dragging on,

but it’s not Daylight Savings’s fault.

I’ve been keeping myself isolated for so long;

safe and sound inside the vault
