“Upside Down” Poem of the Day (2022)

Upside Down

By Ashley O’Hare

If the Earth is constantly turning,

why do I feel upside down 24/7?

Did I do something wrong?
Did I lose the instructions?
Is life designed to be one large obstruction?

Are we all destined for destruction?

How long will we remain under construction?

I have no answers.

I have no theories.

I have lost interest in the cheery

obnoxiously optimistic facade

that never fit me.

The only thing that remains,

I sourly realize,

is to close my eyes

and simply survive.
