“Body Issues” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Body Issues”

By Ashley O’Hare

Put down the ruler.

Step away from the mirror.

Beauty cannot be measured.

Take a deep breath.

Drink some water.

Your world will not end

from having toast with butter.

Do not worry your mind

on those who threw you into the fire.

Mankind’s evil nature

has always been a wonder.

Count some sheep

and get some sleep.

Don’t burn yourself out

counting calories.
