“Our Place” Poem of the Day (2022)

Our Place

By Ashley O’Hare

Far beyond the school yard

under the apple tree

lies a place to rest our heads;

a place to build our dreams.

We’ll imagine a life without money.

We’ll imagine a life without fear.

Nothing bad will happen,

as long as we stay here.

I wish we never skipped town.

I wish I never let you down.

Maybe if I had stayed with you,

all of our dreams would have come true.
