“Out Of Her Mind” Poem of the Day (2022)

Out Of Her Mind

By Ashley O’Hare

She ran out of ideas,

so she went out on a limb.

With bald tires and cheap rims,

she embarked on a solo adventure.

She left behind

her family and friends.

She left behind

her fears and regrets.

Armed with hope and a GPS,

she sought out answers

to the questions she never asked aloud,

overwhelming her mind with curiosity.

The world is bigger

outside the enclosure of her mind.

She would be fine in real life–

her brain had been far less kind.
