“Consequences Of Our Crimes” Poem of the Day (2022)

Consequences Of Our Crimes

By Ashley O’Hare

Tastelessly tormenting those

daring to cross your path;

was it worth it in the long run?

Did it alter your past?

Decisions

cannot be unmade.

Scars

will never completely fade.

Maybe for once

you will accept life

won’t always go your way.

That is how things are

these brutal days.

We take our lives

twenty-four hours at a time

and learn to accept

the consequences of our crimes.
