“The Fight is Over” Poem of the Day (2022)

“The Fight is Over”

By Ashley O’Hare

Bloody knuckles

have solved nothing.

Bruised egos

take an eternity to heal.

A moment of fresh air

can lead to a life of peaceful bliss.

The war is over-

your shield can be lowered.

Danger has no place here;

let down your hair.

Turn to the soldier you became

and bid them farewell.

Their duty is done.

Your new life has begun.
