“Safety in Solitary” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Safety in Solitary”

By Ashley O’Hare

Don’t look for me at parties-

you won’t find me on the dance floor.

Why should I dance like no one is watching

when I can be sure I’m alone.

There is safety in solitary.

Nobody is around to judge

my face

my clothes

my voice

my hobbies

my goals.

Go.

Enjoy your night.

You’ll know where to find me

when it is time to

relax

and

recharge.
