“Love and Hate” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Love and Hate”

By Ashley O’Hare

My friends hated my hair-

too short,

too long,

too light–

all wrong.

My ex hated my face-

too young,

too dull,

too ugly-

never flattering in photos.

My peers despised my hobbies-

dumb nerd,


But the girl in the mirror-

she liked me.

She flicked the devil off her shoulder-

who am I to ignore her?
