“A Voice of Reason” Poem of the Day (2022)

“A Voice of Reason”

By Ashley O’Hare

You’ve been here all along.

If was you–

the voice in the depths of my mind,

pushing me to keep moving.

My voice of reason;

the angel on my shoulder.

I’m sorry–

how horrible it must have been

for your great efforts

to fall on deaf ears.

Imagining where

I would be standing

if I had stopped running;

if I had started listening

is deeply frustrating.

I am truly sorry

for contributing to our suffering.
