“Reason” Poem of the Day (2022)


By Ashley O’Hare

I’m on the verge of tears–

it all looks downhill from here.

From this angle,

I see no looming angels;

only crippling fear

stretching into my future years.

I see only two options:

I could run and hide–

close my eyes

for the rest of my life.

Or I can let go

of control.

Everything awaiting me

will not leave

simply because of a choice

not to stay.

I’ll face it when it comes–

there must be a reason.
