“The Wrong Lens” Poem of the Day (2022)

“The Wrong Lens”

By Ashley O’Hare

I’ve been living my life

through the lens of

someone who hates me.

This crimson red filter

makes everything unflattering.

I’m tired of editing out

the sparkle in my eyes.

I’ve spent too much time

knocking myself down the line.

I’ve spent too much energy

living out a lie.
