“Once Upon a Time” Poem of the Day (2022)

Once Upon a Time

By Ashley O’Hare

There was a time in my life

when I had endless drive

and annoyingly little time.

Now that my schedule has cleared up,

my inspiration has vanished–

I cannot plan two hours ahead.

Hoping and praying for a change

has led me to disappointment–

serves me right for wanting an easy way out.

All of the hard work,

the blood,

the sweat,

the tears,

and the headaches

standing ahead of me

are paralyzing.

I’m terrified.

I’m taking baby steps,

but I’m terrified.
