“Mind Over Matter” Poem of the Day (2022)

Mind Over Matter

By Ashley O’Hare

Lord help me.

I have been chasing dreams

for far too long.

Please save me

from the road of disappointment

that I am on.

Just stop me

before I reach the point

of no return.

Save my heart

while it still has the capacity

to love and to see light.

My body

can only take so much

before collapsing.

Mind over matter

to get through the day

despite the pain.
