“Another Day” Poem of the Day (2022)

Another Day

By Ashley O’Hare

The sun sets

closing in on another day.

My stomach churns

anticipating the new one approaching.

What choices will I have to make?

What risks will I have to take?

Then I see the stars

twinkling against the breathtaking blank black canvas

and my lungs refill.

Breathe in

the day will start.

Breathe out

the day will end.

There is comfort

in the certainty.

There is excitement

in the unknown.

Breathe in

smile and smell the roses.

Breathe out

close your eyes under cool bedsheets.
