“Parameters of Life” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Parameters of Life”

By Ashley O’Hare

With what parameters

shall I judge my life?

Am I on the right track

because I hold an independent mind?

Am I far off course

because I am not yet a wife?

The art of living

has become far too complex.

It is not enough

to listen to my heart at this moment.

I need to constantly be looking forward,

predicting what will come next.

If you see me

with a frown upon my face,

know that I tried my best

to score high

on life’s great tests.
