“Cards on the Table” Poem of the Day (2022)

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.
