“Mirror Image” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Mirror Image”

By Ashley O’Hare

One glance in the mirror

allowed me to see

the girl I used to be.

I didn’t know eyes

could shine so bright

in a world

littered with frights.

I can’t believe

I used to find delight

in the moon’s light

during the black void of night.

My old dreams

suddenly have promise

to be achieved.

Lately I have been begging

for mercy–

for a way to dull the agony.

In the past I would push myself to grow

without fear–

without tears.

How foolish–

I’m envious

of me;

of the girl I used to be.
