“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.
