“Looking Back” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Looking Back”

By Ashley O’Hare

Traveling through the thoughts

hidden in the back of my mind,

I found my biggest dreams

that have been lost for a decade.

With what was wearily wagered,

it was all worth the gamble.

According to my age,

I am now grown.

Lousy lessons learned

have brought me to today.

Never again will I be the innocent girl

who ran blindly to the finish line.

I intermittently inspect

my surroundings now in great detail.

I will continue to move towards my goals;

this time with a heart that is whole.
