“The Girl I Know” Poem of the Day (2022)

The Girl I Know

By Ashley O’Hare

Sometimes

I think I know myself

too well.

I know I will never be

a firework

performing for an audience-

captivating everyone effortlessly.

I know I will never be

a celebrity

standing on top of the world

with all I want within reach.

I know I will never be

the girl I want to see

staring back at me

in the bathroom mirror.

How could I expect

anybody else

to find me worthy?
