“Uncertain” Poem of the Day (2022)


By Ashley O’Hare

Certainty and I

have never been close. 

Changing my mind is never fun,

but a lack of choice is what I fear the most.

My doctor assures me time and again

that I am not claustrophobic.

I have my doubts when I am backed into a corner

with no way out and nothing to do about it.

The human race and I 

have issues with trust.

How am I supposed to open up

without worrying that I will soon be crushed?

Certainty and I 

shall keep our distance.

I reserve my right 

to show some resistance.
