“Someone Like Me” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Someone Like Me”

By Ashley O’Hare

Someone like me

has no business owning a heart.

A person prone to overthink

is destined to make a mistake.

This organ is beating out of control-

it’s taking over.

It ignores all logic-

it couldn’t care less about being realistic.

Over the last 365 days,

my brain has aged two decades.

My heart does not care-

it is stuck in the ninth grade.

The blood is rushing to my chest-

optimism is winning.

My research is powerless

against this heart’s desires.
