“Hopes and Dreams” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Hopes and Dreams”

By Ashley O’Hare

Hopes and dreams

get beat down

by convenience and realities.

They will give you reasons

A to Z

why it is not meant to be.

I wish one person

had been brave enough to tell me

that the ball is in my court.

With enough practice

when I shoot,

I will score.

Life does not have to be

a comfortable bore-

I desperately want more.
