“Childhood Fables” Poem of the Day (2023)

“Childhood Fables”

By Ashley O’Hare

The tortoise and the hare-

what a beautiful tale

of taking life at your own pace;

not following peer pressure’s tail.

There are too many people in the world

to fit into a “one size fits all” mold.

How peculiar is it

to voluntarily rush down a paved road

when there is an undisturbed scenic route.

It is beyond rude

to ignore Mother Nature’s beauty.

The tortoise

had a lot of knowledge under his shell

The hare

should beware-

there are many experiences

he will sadly be missing out on.
