“Locked In” Poem of the Day (2022)

Locked In

By Ashley O’Hare

Locked in again

it’s becoming a trend.

No one’s around-

not a single friend.

Chin up Princess,

this isn’t new.

You should finally accept

that no one is coming to save you.

Read a new book.

Ration your food.

Would it easier to cope

if it wasn’t your fault?
If it wasn’t your hand

that locked the key in the vault?
