“What I Would Like To Say” Poem

What I Would Like to Say

By Ashley O’Hare

I would like to say

that I am not influenced by others—

that I go about my day

with my chin raised,

doing what makes me happy.

One click of a mouse

and I am exposed as a liar.

My middle school friend got a new house.

My cousin has a new spouse.,

and I am here fighting to find my purpose.

If I do not find joy in money,

what kind of job do I get?

People like success as bees like honey,

but how do I become successful without being phony?
How do I make everyone happy?
