“Selfish Independence” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Selfish Independence”

By Ashley O’Hare

Is it selfish

to put my own needs first?

Am I supposed to save my fate

for the world’s worst?

Why is it wrong

to smile in the mirror?

What is the point of becoming

somebody I dread to be near?

The answers to my problems

exist within me.

Nobody else

will come to rescue me.
