“A Mystery Box” Poem of the Day (2022)

“A Mystery Box”

By Ashley O’Hare

We always thought

the world was a mystery box–

you cannot see what’s next;

you only hope for the best.

Recently I found out

what I could never live without

laid outside the realm of my mind–

something extraordinary to all mankind.

I discovered that my life

didn’t require riches to be right;

it needed someone to share it with.

What is joy with no audience?

The world is quite predictable

when we open our eyes to the cards on the table.

What I needed was nothing new.

What I needed was always you.
