“Life’s Sense of Humor” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Life’s Sense of Humor”

By Ashley O’Hare

Life loves ludicrousness.

Why else

would it strip a control freak

of all control?

When a person

is incapable

of trusting their own mind,

how can they be expected to function?

Troubling times

are inevitable,

but they are torturous

when your hands are tied

behind your back.

If we are powerless,

are we meant to not try?

If we want change,

should we still fight?

Life loves leaving

too many questions

with no plausible answers.
