“Fortune or Fortunate” Poem of the Day (2022)

Fortune or Fortunate

By Ashley O’Hare

All my life I believed

celebrities were to envied;

all their voices in my brain

slowly driving me insane. 

I couldn’t admit to wanting a simple life

or my goal to be a man’s wife;

to one day look into my child’s eyes

and know that everything turned out just fine. 

I would never be fulfilled by fame

or the parties that are pretty lame.

I don’t need to see my name in bright lights—

I just want to feel safe at night.
