“My Life Story” Poem of the Day (2022)

My Life Story

By Ashley O’Hare

Flipping ahead

in the story of my life

I spoiled the plot

and read the very last page.

Life is already set in stone-

or so they told me.

After reading my story

I’m torn.

After reading my story

it’s torn.

Every fateful page

in pieces, littered on the floor.

I’ll grab a pencil and paper

and rewrite the plot.

I’ll create my own twists and arcs

because I would be a fool

to let ink on old trees

twist my arm.
