“Chasing the Dream” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Chasing the Dream”

By Ashley O’Hare

I chase my dreams faster

when I am asleep;

when my mind is off duty

and I cannot ask you to leave.

My gut is too strong

to be ignored,

but when it takes a day off,

nature is free to let fate take over.

I’m sorry-

you always came on too strong.

I didn’t have time to sort out

right from wrong.

These pestering butterflies

never let me think straight.

I never had enough time

to decide on the right path to take.
