“One Day” Poem of the Day (2022)

One Day

By Ashley O’Hare

One day these wounds

Will become scars

And fade away

Like the nighttime stars.

One day your face

Will become a distant memory;

A minor nuisance

Like a dental cavity.

One day I will go to bed

And get seven hours of sleep.

Dreams will be a regular occurrence

Rather than a rare treat.
