“Wasted Gifts” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Wasted Gifts”

By Ashley O’Hare

He was an angel:

Pure,

Steady,

Always there.

How cruel is life

to bless you with a gift

you were too young

to appreciate;

too naive

to understand.

How kind is life

to gift you

an invaluable second chance.

Do not

throw it to waste.

Do not

make the same mistakes.
