“Options” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Options”

By Ashley O’Hare

When the snow flurries to the ground

blanketing the road in ice,

take a moment by the front door

and think twice.

Is the chance of adventure

worth risking your life?

A steering wheel may appear harmless,

but it is as fatal as a knife.

Consider your options.

Come up with a plan B.

There are better ways

to spend your evening.

Do not be rash.

Do not lose your head.

So much light in your life

lies just ahead.
