“The Same Coin” Poem of the Day (2022)

“The Same Coin”

By Ashley O’Hare

The same 26 letters

that created my favorite novels

shattered my heart.

The same face

that made me smile

tore my soul apart.

The same candle

that burned my fingers

eliminated the dark.

As a child

we learn about

heroes and villains.

The tricky thing is

the hero who saved the world

has blood on their hands.

Good and Evil.

Light and Dark.

Two sides

of the same coin.
