“Wasted Potential” Poem of the Day (2022)

Wasted Potential

By Ashley O’Hare

Did I waste my potential? 

Was choosing happiness my downfall?

Should I have chosen a different career?
Would I be happier with the title of “Doctor?”

I wish life was not full of unknowns

because when forecasted rain turns into snow,

my carefully curated day is blown

and I am left to stay home alone.

If only life was more like the books

where the story is so interesting, I am instantly hooked.

Where I could skip to the very last page

and see, ahead of time, all of my mistakes.
