“Not Anymore” Poem of the Day (2022)

Not Anymore

By Ashley O’Hare

You cannot hurt me anymore.

I’m older now;

I can see through every

little white lie.

You will never again get away

with your petty crimes.

Never again

will I spend a dime

trying to alter my life

for your eyes.

You cannot hurt me anymore.

I no longer

worship your thoughts,

consider your feelings,

or take pride in your praise.

Not another day

will be spent in a mindless daze

hoping for your approval.

This is the promise

I made to myself.

I will keep it

this time.
