“Wasting Time” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Wasting Time”

By Ashley O’Hare

Is it still a waste of time

if I am having the time of my life?

When my nose is in a book,

I get a brand new outlook;

new settings,

new plotlines-

it’s better than burning outside.

With a pen in my hand,

I could create a brand new wonderland.

If I have headphones on my ears,

I have everything that I want to hear.

My new favorite pop band

sounds better without toes full of sand.

A movie on the big screen

is complimented with popcorn and ice cream.

I am just living my life

and spending my time

the way I like.
