“Right From Wrong” Poem of the Day (2022)

Right From Wrong

By Ashley O’Hare

Wagging fingers

Hour long lectures—

I guess I will never learn 

Wrong from right.

My brain wants to find what is right.

My heart constantly anticipates a fight.

Is it better to stay quiet?

Or should I speak my mind?

Hours spent in time out

Would be more responsible with the clouds—

Letting go of the ground;

Giving optimism a chance.

Often I sit and wonder

Whose opinion should surrender.

One of us has to be wrong

At a second glance.

I will admit defeat

If you will leave my heart complete.
