“Life’s A Dance” Poem of the Day (2022)

Life’s A Dance

By Ashley O’Hare

Scalding spotlights,

fighting new nerves

and crippling stage fright.

I wish I knew 

how this night will end.

This passion is too new

to my life trends.

My gut is a mess;

there is too much stress.

over a loose thread in my dress.

I’ll be the first to confess

that I have never been so distressed

and simultaneously blessed.

This is the life 

I want to live

beyond just tonight.
