“Under The Sun” Poem of the Day (2022)

Under The Sun

By Ashley O’Hare

Maybe my head hit a rock.

Maybe I lost too much oxygen in the headlock.

Maybe it runs in the family.

Maybe it was all a freak accident.

Maybe you will blame 

Everything under the sun

Before you will consider

The man in the mirror.

Some things in life

Are rather simple.

My life was better before;

It is a basic principle.

I will not apologize this time.

I will not take responsibility for your crimes.

I am taking back what is mine.
