“The Human Race” Poem of the Day (2022)

The Human Race

By Ashley O’Hare

The human race is amazing.

Chunks of metal

make beautiful harmonies.

Words on paper

make fantastical stories.

People can be trained

to save lives.

Yet the idea of magic is radical.

We fight to find a purpose

for everything. 

Instead of joy,

we focus on money.

We argue with our peers

over who deserves glory.

We pretend it is not a miracle

to simply survive.

So we hold out for answers,

no matter how impractical;.
