“Autopilot” Poem of the Day (2022)


By Ashley O’Hare

When I think about my future,

I cannot put myself first.

My plans, my goals all vanish from the picture

without your face in the foreground.

Lost contact

and broken hearts

won’t stop me

from walking through this broken glass.

I put my mind on autopilot

because overthinking

will only make it all worse.

I’m ignoring my fears.

I’m trusting my gut.

I’m following my heart.
