“Opened Eyes” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Opened Eyes”

By Ashley O’Hare

It all seems simple now;

I awoke this morning

to a crystal clear head.

There is no logical sense,

but I am not going to question the how.

Each day

blends into the others.

I’m enjoying my time,

but I feel like

I am only surviving.

Perhaps I am too selfish;

I had diamonds in my past.

If I am destined for a future of coal,

I have no room to complain at all.

I wish I could remain blind;

blissfully ignorant.

But this is my debt.

I have to pay it.
