Cards on the Table
By Ashley O’Hare
I wonder where I would be
if I had listened to the advice you gave me.
Would I still be pursuing my dreams?
Or would I have settled for your trophy?
I would like to hope for the former,
but I have seen you with her.
Whose idea was it for her to call you sir?
We both know that it is more than you deserve.
I suppose I should be grateful
for not being involved with someone so hateful
but I will put all my cards on the table
and pray that she too ends up with someone stable.
