“Nineteen” Poem of the Day (2022)


By Ashley O’Hare

Nineteen is far too young

to expect the earth

to take its last rotation.

A boy is far too trivial

to make a person feel

so dark and insignificant.

Some things

should never happen.

Some things

are simply unfair.

Barely an adult

and leaving childhood

far behind.

You can’t hold on

to innocence and hope

this time.
