“Simplicity” Poem of the Day (2022)


By Ashley O’Hare

Life is simple.

We need



and water.

Imagine a world like that:

Where we didn’t need instant gratification.

Where we didn’t need global acceptance.

When we didn’t need another heart to be whole.

Maybe if we returned

to that drastic simplicity,

my racing mind

would eventually achieve sleep.
