“What I Know” Poem of the Day (2022)

“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 know.

I have heard it all a million times before.

I have fought my brain to accept it,

but it hates me.

Without acceptance,

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.

Not now.

I don’t know how.
