“What I Know”
By Ashley O’Hare
“This isn’t like you.”
“Time will heal you.”
“You can’t always know what to do.”
“Stop acting two.”
“This was long overdue.”
I have heard it all a million times before.
I have fought my brain to accept it,
but it hates me.
I will never reach an opportunity to change.
This is not of my free will.
If I could, I would pay my bill-
I would buckle down and learn a new skill.
But I can’t.
I don’t know how.
