“A Perfect World” Poem of the Day (2022)

“A Perfect World”

By Ashley O’Hare

In a perfect world

my heart finds its home.

I wouldn’t be “the girl,”

my name would hold meaning.

What lies on the surface

would cease to be criticized.

What lies within

would be appreciated.

The stars in the sky

we wished on at the beach

last July

would never

be out of our reach.

In a perfect world,

joy would be innate.

Unfortunately this world

is littered with flaws.

We need to draw our claws

and fight for what we want.
