“I Was Here” Poem of the Day (2022)

I Was Here

By Ashley O’Hare

Lately my life feels

messy,

useless,

and wasteful.

All the pain I have endured—

nothing,

worthless,

and pitiful.

My story will never bring

joy,

happiness,

and inspiration.

It will stay within the prison of my mind—

trapped,

breathless,

and patient.

But I was here.

Nobody knows it,

but I was here.
