“Gut Reactions” Poem of the Day (2023)

“Gut Reactions”

By Ashley O’Hare

My gut has become sensitive.

I ignored it once-

it has yet to forgive me.

My gut has never been wrong before.

How ignorant was I

to think I knew better?

How foolish am I

to try to do it again?

My heart must love pain

if it keeps jumping into the shredder.

If only there was a formula

for solving every problem in my life.

If only there was a study guide

to help me prepare

for my next great challenge

and find the correct answers.
