“Awaken” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Awaken”

By Ashley O’Hare

Wake up.

Wake up–

this isn’t you.

Stop being stubborn;

your dreams

can still come true.

Come on–

brush off the dirt

and rise again.

Forget the odds;

the old you

wouldn’t give them

a second thought.

Breathe deep,

Close your eyes,

And count to ten.

I’m not leaving

until you try

again.
