“Vicious Void” Poem of the Day (2022)

Vicious Void

By Ashley O’Hare

Maybe I had this coming.

If everything happens for a reason,

then I must have done something

to anger the cosmos.

Mindlessly meandering through life

has gotten me nowhere.

Living vicariously through others

has become downright depressing.

They tell me to embrace the pain—

that the grass is greener on the other side,

but my feet are burning on these hot coals

and the other side is just a vicious void.
