“Three Years Ago” Poem of the Day (2022)

Three Years Ago

By Ashley O’Hare

Three years ago

life was not this cold.

I was dreaming of who I would be

when I grow old.

Fast forward to now,

I am still learning how

to fit into the crowd

and find myself.

Those old dreams

were forgotten in my locker

with my logic and reasoning.

I’m sorry to the girl I was;

to the sweet planner

who had checklists of every possible plan.

She just couldn’t survive the flood

of stress that life had to give her.
