“Out Of Whack” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Out Of Whack”

By Ashley O’Hare

Nobody prepares you

for going far.

We are taught

how to get by-

how to barely survive.

If you decide

you want to thrive,

you must abandon the hive.

Wanting more

is out of whack.

Movement forward

threatens the paved track.

When you make it to the moon,

set up camp.

You’ll have company soon.

I just need to

find my compass

before I meet you.
